Ingredients

  • 8

    cups (32 oz) broccoli florets (2 L, 0.9 kg)

  • Cheese Sauce (recipe)

  • 1/2

    cup grated Monterey Jack, OR (125 mL)

  • Cheddar cheese

  • 2

    tbsp Parmesan cheese, optional (30 mL).

Directions

In pot in boiling water, cook broccoli florets about 10 minutes, or until tender (you may also steam your broccoli). Drain and place broccoli in 8-inch (20 cm) square, deep casserole dish. Prepare Cheese Sauce. Double the recipe. Pour over the broccoli and gently toss to distribute the sauce evenly. Sprinkle with Monterey Jack, OR Cheddar cheese. Place in 350°F (180°C) oven 10 minutes, or just until cheese has melted. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if using. Serve. Helpful Hint: I really like the broccoli with Monterey Jack cheese in the sauce. I typically use milk in this recipe to cut calories a bit.
