    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large pot over medium heat, cook the onions in the margarine until soft.
    2. 2
      Stir in the flour and cook (but do not brown) for 1 minute, stirring frequently.
    3. 3
      Whisk in the milk, reduce heat and stir occasionally.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, chop the broccoli florets into small pieces, place in a small saucepan with the broth (or water) and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until tender (about 6-8 minutes).
    5. 5
      As the milk mixture thickens, stir in the slices of American cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste.
    6. 6
      When the broccoli is tender, add it (including the cooking liquid) to the thickened cheese mixture. Stir well to combine and serve immediately.

      Made this last night, it was GREAT!!!! I have to say I wasn't very convinced when I thought about cheese slices, even my husband questioned this one but really it does work and the whole family loved it. My husband and I are cooking fanatic's so we are pretty critical regarding recipes and to our surprise it was amazing. Highly recommend making this recipe. Just a side note: I had broccoli already cut up and I used 3 1/2 cups.

      Simple and delicious. I used butter, 1% milk, broth and added just a touch more cheese. :)

      Very good & easy to make. This would be great served in a bread bowl. The onion was a little strong for me, so I will use less next time.
