This recipe is a new take on an old favorite. Broccoli is combined with flour, milk, eggs and Swiss cheese. You can substitute any cheese you choose.
INGREDIENTS (for 7 servings):
- 8 cups fresh broccoli
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- salt and pepper to taste
- 4 cups shredded Swiss cheese
- 2 eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Place broccoli in a steamer over 1 inch of boiling water, and cover. Cook until tender but still firm, about 2 to 6 minutes. Drain.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat and add flour; cook until bubbly. Stir in onion and gradually add milk, stirring well. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper. Stir in cheese and eggs; mix well. Combine mixture with broccoli and transfer to a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
