Servings 2


  • 1 lb broccoli
  • 1/8 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp flour
  • 1 dash garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


  1. Begin boiling water in medium sauce pan.

  2. While water is boiling, begin cutting broccoli into large chunks.

  5. Once butter is melted, mix in flour. Continue melting until it is a golden brown.

  6. Mix in the heavy cream and bring to a slow bubble.
