Serves 10 as a side dish
1 lb. broccoli
3 1/2 Tbs. butter
3 Tbs. flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups milk
1 3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese (or cheddar cheese)
2 eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly grease a large baking dish (at least 10″ x 7″). In boiling water, cook the broccoli for approximately 10 minutes (until al dente). Drain well. Gently dry with paper towels if needed.
In a large pot over low heat melt the butter, whisk in the flour and salt and continue whisking until smooth. Slowly add the milk and continue whisking constantly until thickened and starts to boil (let slow boil 1-2 minutes). Remove from heat.
Fold in the cheese and broccoli and combine gently until cheese starts to melt slightly. Add the eggs and continue to stir gently to combine.
Pour into prepared baking dish and bake for approximately 30-45 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
