Delicious Broccoli Cheese Casserole Recipe

Delicious Broccoli Cheese Casserole Recipe

I make a traditional Broccoli Cheese Casserole without canned soup. French gratin-style, cooked from scratch.

– 1 pound broccoli florets – 3 Tbsp butter – 3 Tbsp flour – 2 cups whole milk, or low fat (not skim) – 8 ounces shredded cheese , I used 2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend – 2 large eggs, whisked – 1 tsp salt – lots of fresh cracked black pepper – grated fresh nutmeg, about 1/8 ~ 1/4 tsp, to taste



Set oven to 325°F. Lightly grease a casserole dish and leave aside. Cut the broccoli, including the fragile stalks, into bite-sized pieces.

Step 1

Step 2

Put in a glass bowl, add a little water, and microwave for 2 minutes. Remove and drain properly. Butter melts in a pot over medium heat. 

Step 3

Stir in the flour for a minute. Whisk or stir in the milk slowly until it thickens and simmers. Stop cooking.

Step 4

After cooling for a minute, add cheese, eggs, and seasonings. (I swirl or whisk the beaten eggs quickly to avoid scrambling).

Step 5

Add broccoli to the casserole. Bake until golden and bubbling, about 1 hour. You can broil it for the last minute or two to brown it.
