  • Cover, simmer on low for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat; set aside. (Keep lid on pan so that it stays warm.)
  • Cook broccoli in water until desired texture you prefer. (I like to cook it for about 10 minutes - soft, but not yet mushy)
  • While broccoli is cooking....get another saucepan.
  • Add to the saucepan; the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter.
  • Add flour and bouillon. Mix well.
  • Stir in milk and whisk iconuntil smooth. (keep warm)

  • Spoon iconthe stuffing around the outside of a lightly greased 2-qt baking dish, leaving a well; set aside.
  • Place the cooked and drained broccoli in the well.
  • Pour the cheese mixture over the broccoli.
  • Sprinkle the entire dish with the shredded cheese.
  • Serve after the cheese has melted.
