Oven, Pot (small), Stovetop, Colander, Baking Dish
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cut the broccoli into florets of equal size. Add the broccoli to the boiling water & cook for 3-5 minutes. Drain & set aside.
To make the sauce, melt the butter in a pan over medium-low heat. Whisk in the flour & stir constantly until the mixture turns a nutty brown.
Gradually whisk in the milk. Simmer while stirring, until it forms a thick consistency that coats the back of a spoon. Add a pinch of nutmeg (optional). Remove from heat.
Transfer the broccoli to an oven-safe dish. Pour the white sauce over the broccoli & sprinkle with grated cheese. Season with salt & pepper.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Eat up!
