Get kids to eat their broccoli with this cheesy, gooey casserole favorite.

Ingredients

  1. Check 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. Check 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  3. Check 3 cups whole milk
  4. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  5. Check 1 bunch broccoli, cut into small florets (about 6 cups)
  6. Check 1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar (5 ounces)

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Sprinkle with the flour and cook, whisking, for 30 seconds. Slowly whisk in the milk, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  2. Simmer, whisking occasionally, until thickened, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in the broccoli and cook until crisp-tender, 4 to 8 minutes. Stir in 1 cup of the Cheddar. Heat broiler.
  3. Transfer the broccoli mixture to an 8-inch or other 2-quart baking dish and top with the remaining ¼ cup of cheese. Broil until the top is golden, 2 to 4 minutes.
