directions

  • In a large pot over medium heat, cook the onions in the margarine until soft.
  • Stir in the flour and cook (but do not brown) for 1 minute, stirring frequently.
  • Whisk in the milk, reduce heat and stir occasionally.
  • 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).
  • As the milk mixture thickens, stir in the slices of American cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • When the broccoli is tender, add it (including the cooking liquid) to the thickened cheese mixture. Stir well to combine and serve immediately.

    Very good, it really hit the spot! I will be making this a lot this coming winter. Writing this inside my favorite cookbook with my other favorite recipes. It's easier to list flour as 1/2 cup instead of 8 tablespoons.

    Used butter and increased to a whole stick. Upped cheese to 10 slices. Added a chicken bouillon cubes to water before cooking broccoli. Next time I'll add 2 and no salt.

    Great way to use leftover broccoli. My tweaks: I used a whole (medium sized) yellow onion & a clove of garlic (though I could have used one more). Since my broccoli was already cooked, I added a chicken bouillon cube in the broth. I also used on cup of heavy cream & 3 cups of milk. I used butter instead of marg. Instead of slices of american cheese, I used 1 1/2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar. Thanks for the inspiration!

    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.
