The genius idea here is pulsing sliced pepperoni with bread crumbs to add a ton of extra flavor and a great crunch to broccoli.

  1. 2 ounces sliced pepperoni
  2. 1 garlic clove, sliced
  3. 1 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
  4. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  5. 2 pounds broccoli, trimmed and cut into long spears
  6. Salt
  7. 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. In a mini food processor, pulse the pepperoni with the garlic until finely chopped. Add the panko and pulse just to combine.
  2. In a medium skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the crumb mixture and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until crisp and golden, about 5 minutes. Scrape onto a plate and let cool.
  3. Meanwhile, in a bowl, toss the broccoli with the remaining 1/4 cup of olive oil and season with salt. Spread the broccoli on a baking sheet and roast for about 15 minutes, turning once, until tender and browned in spots. Spread the mustard on one side of the broccoli and press the broccoli into the crumbs. Transfer the broccoli to a platter, sprinkle with any remaining crumbs and serve.
