Broccoli Cheese Bake

Inspiration:
Broccoli from our CSA and this recipe

Ingredients:
  • 4 cups fresh broccoli
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 5/8 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten

Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. 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.
  3. 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 small casserole dish.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.

Notes: Definitely not the healthiest broccoli recipe, but it's pretty tasty!
