Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds broccoli florets
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter divided
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 ½ cups milk whole
  • 2 cups extra-sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper optional
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees Grease (4) 6-ounce ramekins. Place the ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet; set aside.
  • Cut the broccoli into 2-inch florets. Add the florets to a steamer basket and set over boiling water. Cover and steam broccoli, until tender; about 4 to 5 minutes. When the broccoli is tender; turn off the heat.
  • Meanwhile, make a roux. In a large nonstick skillet or sauce pot, melt 3 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, until golden, stirring constantly. Gradually whisk in the milk; bring to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly until thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon; about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in cheese, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cook 1 min., until cheese melts. Turn off the heat and stir in steamed broccoli.
  • Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and toss the bread crumbs with the butter, to coat. Spoon broccoli mixture into prepared ramekins and top with bread crumbs.
  • Place the sheet pan of ramekins into the oven and bake until bubbly and golden brown; about 10 minutes.

Notes

Recipe adapted from Savory Magazine
I used panko bread crumbs for extra crunch, but feel free to use regular bread crumbs.
