    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    This was from a holiday article in Good Housekeeping. The picture looked absolutely DEELISH! I love broccoli and, believe it or not, we're still harvesting broccoli from our garden. I'm excited about serving this on Thanksgiving as an alternative to our usual broccoli casserole.

    1. 1
      In a 4 quart saucepot, melt 4 tbsp butter over med-low heat. Stir in flour, salt, and cayenne until blended; cook 1 minute stirring. Gradually stir in milk; cook until mixture boils and thickens, stirring frequently. Stir in cheese; cook until just melted. Remove from heat and stir in broccoli.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, lightly beat egg yolks. Stir in about 1/2 cup cheese sauce. Gradually pour egg yolk mixture into cheese sauce, stirring rapidly to prevent curdling. Cool slightly.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a shallow 3 1/2 quart casserole dish or a 9x13 dish. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt 1 tablespoons butter and mix in crumbs. In a large bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold one third of the whites into the cheese mixture. Fold cheese mixture gently back into the remaining whites. Pour into casserole. Sprinkle with cracker crumbs and bake 40 min or until the top is browned. Serve immediately.

      This was a wonderful accompaniment to our pork chops last night. I did reduce the amount of bread crumbs to 1/2 half cup but did use the full 1 tablespoon of butter. I had more than enough to cover the casserole. Made this for ZWT3 Garden Challenge.

      Found this recipe to have a great broccoli/cheddar flavor. My guests were not happy with the amount of breadcrumbs. It was dry on the top. I think it needs a little more melted butter for the amount of bread. The puff itself was good though.

      Tried this recipe for the holiday and was plesantly surprised. I followed the recipe word for word except I used Cheddar with horseradish and everyone raved about it. What was not consumed went home as doggie bags with friends
