Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds broccoli florets
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt (divided)
  • black pepper
  • 5 ounces shredded cheddar cheese (divided)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  2. Spray a 9” square baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. Chop the broccoli into 1” florets and place in a large pot. Fill the pot with enough water to cover the broccoli. Set the pot over high heat and place a lid on top. Bring to a boil. Boil the broccoli just until it turns bright green, about 1 minute. Drain the broccoli and rinse under cold water. Allow it to sit in the colander while preparing the sauce.

  5. In a large pot over medium heat, melt 2 Tablespoons of butter. Once melted, add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds, until fragrant. Sprinkle the flour into the pot. Whisk to thoroughly combine. Continue whisking for 1-2 minutes, until the roux turns slightly golden and begins to smell toasty.
  6. Slowly stream the milk into the pot while continuing to whisk. Cook the mixture, whisking steadily for 4-5 minutes, until it begins to thicken and bubble.
  7. Once bubbling, turn off the heat. Add a 1 cup of the shredded cheddar, 1/2 tsp. Of salt, ad black pepper, to taste, to the pot. Whisk slowly until the cheese is fully melted and the sauce is smooth.
  8. Once the sauce is smooth, add the broccoli to the pot. Stir until the florets are thoroughly coated.
  9. Pour the contents of the pot into the greased baking dish.
  10. Place the bread crumbs, parmesan, remaining cheddar cheese. ¼ tsp. salt, and black pepper, to taste, in a medium mixing bowl. Mix with a fork to combine. Add 4 Tablespoons of melted butter to the bowl, and stir until all the breadcrumbs are moistened. Sprinkle the crumbs in an even layer over the broccoli.
  11. Transfer the baking dish to the middle rack of the preheated oven.
  12. Bake the gratin for 22-25 minutes, until the edges are bubbling and the top is golden brown.
  13. Remove the dish from the oven. Allow it to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
