Add some cheesy goodness to your standard weeknight side dish. Broccoli with Cheese Sauce is simple to whip up and will make the whole family happy.
Servings 4 servings
- 4 to 6 cups fresh broccoli florets
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 cup milk (preferably whole or 2%)
- 8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
Bring a few inches of water to a simmer in a saucepan. Place a steamer basket in the pan and add your broccoli. Top with a lid and steam until it reaches desired tenderness.
Meanwhile, make the cheese sauce. Heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Add butter and allow to melt. Sprinkle in flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Whisk well and cook for 2 minutes, whisking often. Add milk to the flour mixture and whisk well until smooth. Bring to a simmer, whisking constantly, until the sauce has thickened enough to nicely coat the back of a spoon. Add shredded cheese and whisk until melted.
Drizzle broccoli with desired amount of cheese sauce.
