Gratin of Broccoli in Bechamel
This dish was the first time I experienced the wonderful flavor of Gruyere cheese & it really adds a delicious layer of flavor. Now, I normally wouldn't spend that much money on a cheese but I am glad I did. I made this for a holiday dinner and everyone just loved it!
This recipe comes from my cookbook called Christmas with Southern Living 2000.
