Easy Broccoli au Gratin Casserole recipe that is perfect for family gatherings.
broccoli au gratin, broccoli casserole
2quarts broccoli florets
1/4cup butter or spread
1/4cupall purpose flour
1tspchicken or vegetable basepreferably msg free
2cupsshredded sharp cheddar
2tbs.butter or spread
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place the florets in a glass or ceramic bowl, add the 1/4 cup of water, cover with plastic wrap and steam in the microwave for 5 minutes, then drain the broccoli, and arrange in a 2 qt casserole dish (I usually use an 8x8).
Prepare the topping for the casserole, by mixing half of the butter/spread into the Panko crumbs.
While the broccoli is steaming, melt the remaining butter in saucepan over med-high heat. Once melted add garlic & stir.
After the garlic is cooked through and soft (only takes about a minute), add milk, flour and base. Whisk well, and continue to whisk frequently. Cooking until the sauce readily coats the back of a spoon (see image).
Remove the sauce from burner, then add 1/2 the cheese. Stir until cheese is melted, then pour over the broccoli evenly.
Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the casserole, then evenly cover with topping.
Bake for 20-24 minutes, until crumbs are golden brown.
