thank you - this was exactly what I was looking for! I needed to 'dress up' the broccoli just a tad but I was not wanting the whole 'broccoli/cheese casarole' thing. Just perfect my family loved it. Thanks for posting.
I always use Velveeta instead. Shredded Cheddar would not result in a very desirable consistency. No butter just a little milk or half and half and fresh broccoli. Want your kids to scarf down broccoli without being prodded? Use this recipe - my kids almost begged for it growing up!
This was okay but would be alot better with a few changes. First I used microwaved frozen broccoli steamed in the bag. be sure to drain all moisture even letting it sit on a paper towel for a minute would work. Then follow recipe and add extra cheese until it is to your liking. If you don't drain well you will end up with a watery mess.
Easy and yes simple and quick. I'm not a fan of cooking in the microwave--nothing against this recipe as I know it's a great way to cook certain things--I just dislike it. So I did everything except steam the broccoli in the microwave. I melted some butter tossed it with cheese broccoli salt and pepper then baked covered at 350 for 30 minutes and it turned out perfectly. It isn't much true but that's what I was looking for. I didn't want to use Velveeta since I didn't have any and I don't have sour cream or anything else to use either. This worked well and we had it for lunch with some baked ziti. Thanks for the recipe!
My mom has made broccoli and cheese this way my whole life. I like it but I don't love it. It just isn't quite as cheesy. I prefer to make a cheese sauce myself out of cheese milk and butter for a really good broccoli and cheese. If I'm just throwing together something quick to eat with a weeknight dinner I cut Velveeta into cubes and toss it in with the broccoli after I've drained it then put the lid on and put it on the burner on "Warm" stir it up then serve. Even though the cheese is processed and some people don't like that I definitely think it's a better way than this method.
I really like broccoli and cheese. I find it better to use velveeta for the cheese. Also if you want to make this into a more stuffing meal/side dish mix in cooked white rice. That's how I used to eat it as a kid and I still do =D

This recipe was good in theory but it was just basically melted shredded cheese on broccoli and not anything like the frozen ones. I tried this because I was tired of spending 2.50 for a lil package of frozen stuff. Melt a small amount of milk with the butter and seasoning then add the cheese and stir. This will make it the more creamy sauce if you are looking for something similar to the green giant variety. It also looks better and works for any kind of cheese.
