Broccoli with Cheese Sauce

This is probably the most favorite of all broccoli dishes. Even my son that refuses to eat cooked broccoli likes this. The flavor and texture depend on the cheese used. Don’t use a stringy cheese like Mozzarella. You want a cheese that will melt and has good flavor.

Cheese Sauce ( see Basic Cheese Sauce)
2 cups milk
¼ cup flour
1 cup shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese

Stir milk and flour in blender.
Pour into 6 cup microwaveable bowl.
Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir with whisk, scraping sides and bottom of bowl and breaking up any lumps that may have formed.
Microwave for 1 ½ minutes. Repeat stirring with whisk.
Microwave for 1 minute. Repeat stirring.
Add cheese and stir.
Microwave another minute and stir, if needed, to completely melt the cheese.
Pour over steamed broccoli and serve.
Serves 6 to 8
