How to Make Broccoli Au Gratin

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven 350°F.
  2. In a large pot, bring water and salt to a rolling boil. Add the broccoli and cook until it is crisp tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. In a small sauce pan, melt the butter and whisk in the flour to form a roux. Turn heat down to low.
  4. Drain the broccoli, reserving 1 cup of the water.
  5. Whisk the reserved water into the roux and bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer until thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the nutmeg, pepper, ¾ cup Parmesan cheese and all of the Monterey Jack cheese.
  6. Place the broccoli in a shallow baking dish. Pour cheese sauce over and top with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and the Panko bread crumbs.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes at 350°F and broil on low for about 5 minutes until browned on top.

    Serve immediately.
