Creamy Broccoli and Cheese

"This broccoli and cheese recipe came from my mother. When I was young I would eat it as a side dish, now I like to top my baked potatoes with them."

    Very very good! I used soy creamer because I hadn't made my daily batch of soymilk yet today (oops). Since I didn't want it to be so thick I subbed some of it with chicken broth, which I figured would add to the buttery flavor as well (and it did). Also used margarine and Teese soy cheese. So I made the same recipe only with completely different ingredients lol. Just wanted to review to let everyone know how versatile and tasty it is. Thanks so much KrisVonD!

    Oh my, this is a wonderful broccoli dish! The evaporated milk definitely added a rich/creamy texture to this dish. A winner for sure and one I will be making over and over again.

    I gave this 5 stars. This almost exactly how I make my broccoli w/cheese. I use 1% milk instead of the evaporated milk. I've also used cauiflower and carrots with the broccoli. Thanks for posting. Christine (internetnut)

    I'm actually reviewing this for my daughter. She needed a side dish to take to a company dinner to go with steak. She called me on the way there in a panic saying the sauce was really thin but it tasted good. She called me after the dinner and said by the time she got there, it had thickened to a perfect consistency and her dish was the talk of the dinner. Everyone loved loved it. The steaks were dry and people used the sauce from this dish to dip their steak in!! SHe was soo proud!!!
