Solo Microwave Lemon Cheese and Broccoli

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Bill Hilbrich

A quick and simple side dish for one that could be made at home or in a dormitory microwave.

Top Review by JennyG

This recipe would have been a 5 star winner except for the use of Velveeta, which of course is used because it quickly melts. I substituted American cheese & it worked well and was delicious. After all, our chef here says to always be creative. Good job, Bill! Jenny
