1 Large Bundle of Broccoli (mine usually has 2-3 heads per bundle)

3 T Butter

3T GF Flour (regular is fine)

1 C + 1T Milk

1/2 C Heavy Cream

1/2 C Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

1/4 C Shredded Colby Cheese

1/4 C Shredded Swiss Cheese

1/4 tsp. Fresh Ground Black Pepper (more or less to taste)

1/4 tsp. Granulated Garlic

1/4 tsp. Paprika

1/4 tsp. Turmeric (optional)

1/8 tsp. Onion Powder


-Steam broccoli for 5 minutes, allow to drain any water, place in baking dish with lid (can use foil). Set aside.

-Mix cheeses together, set aside.

-In medium pot, over medium low heat, melt butter, stir in flour.  Allow to cook 3 minutes, whisk in milk and cream.  Make sure roux is blended.  Whisk in spices, increase temp to medium, allow milk to heat.

-Slowly stir in 3/4 C cheese, as cheese starts to melt, reduce temperature to ensure scorching doesn’t occur.  Once cheese is melted completely, pour evenly over broccoli.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
