ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Use 1 tablespoon butter to butter a 9x9 or 9x13 baking dish.
  • Steam broccoli until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter in a medium saucepan. Whisk in the flour until smooth. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  • Add the milk, salt, and nutmeg and bring to a boil while stirring constantly. Lower heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the white sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes. Season with pepper.
  • Put the broccoli in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with half of the cheese and pour on the white sauce. Cover with the remaining cheese.
  • Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a small skillet. Add the bread crumbs and cook, stirring, until lightly browned.
  • Cover the gratin with the breadcrumbs. Bake at 450 for about 20 minutes, or until lightly browned and bubbly.

    We found the sauce so thick it was distracting and all we could taste. I think next time I'll make a thinner white sauce and add a bit more cheese. Thanks loof! Made for ZWT8 trip to France.

    So good and so easy to make! I made 1/2 the recipe since I am the only one who eats broccoli. I liked that it was not soupy and the broccoli didn't get mushy. Was a nice change from steamed or sauteed broccoli. Made for ZWT8.
