Broccoli in Cheese Sauce

  • 1 pound frozen broccoli
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Good dash pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 to 1 cup shredded cheese

First you have to cook your broccoli. I do this in the microwave, in a bowl, until it is hot throughout. Sometimes, I put a spoonful of water in with the broccoli when I think of it. Follow the directions on the package of the frozen broccoli if you need to. While the broccoli is cooking, melt the margarine in a 2-quart saucepan. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper. Let it bubble a little bit to sort of toast the flour. Whisk in the milk. Cook and stir the sauce over medium heat until it boils. Allow it to boil for a whole minute. Add the cheese and stir until it melts. Add the cooked broccoli, drained if necessary. Stir it up and bring it to a boil again. Serve to hungry people, who are thankful for broccoli in cheese sauce. This is pretty good over baked potatoes or plain cooked rice. It can be served over instant mashed potatoes too, when you need something really quick.
