Wow! If you are looking for another way to serve Broccoli to family and friends, this just may be the one.
- 3 cups broccoli florets, fresh not frozen
- 3 tbsp. butter
- 3 tbsp. flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 – 3 oz. package of cream cheese
- 1/4 – 1/3 cup blue cheese, crumbled (depends how much you love blue cheese)
- 1/2 cup panko crumbs
- 1-2 tbsp. melted butter
Steam the broccoli for about 5-8 minutes, just until tender and set aside.
In a skillet, make a roux by melting the butter and slowly whisking in the flour and, stirring constantly, slowly add the milk. ( you may need to add about 1/4 cup milk more to make a consistent roux. Add the cream cheese and blue cheese.
Stir in the broccoli and pour into a buttered casserole. Top with the panko crumbs and drizzle over with the melted butter.
Bake for 35 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
