Broccoli Blue Cheese Bake

4 cups fresh or frozen small broccoli florets (thawed, if frozen)
2 tbsp butter
1-2 large garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup blue cheese, crumbled
1 cup milk or light cream
fresh ground black pepper, to taste
1.5 sleeves Ritz butter crackers, made into crumbs
6 tbsp butter, melted

1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray a medium baking dish with cooking spray.

2. Put my broccoli in a microwave safe bowl with 2 inches of water and microwave 2-3 minutes. Drain well.

3. In a large saucepan melt, the 2 tablespoons of butter over medium-low heat, until it begins to bubble; add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the flour and stir for 1 minute.

4. Add the cream cheese, blue cheese, and milk or cream; stir over low heat until melted and smooth. Stir in the broccoli.

5. In a bowl, combine the cracker crumbs with the melted butter until well combined. Remove 1 cup of the cracker mixture and stir it into the broccoli mixture. Season with black pepper.

6. Transfer mixture into prepared dish. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes.

7. Remove from oven and sprinkle the top with the remaining cracker crumbs. Return to oven and bake uncovered for another 10 minutes.

Serves 4-5.

About This Blog

I find recipes everywhere. Online. In magazines. In cookbooks. On the back of boxes. After a while, it got difficult to remember where I found (or stashed) a particular recipe when I wanted to make it a second time. With the goal of wrangling them all in one coherent location that was easy to find and navigate--along with multiple requests from friends for this recipe or that one--this blog was born.
