To treat fat face syndrome, eat your green veggies even if they are disguised in a buttery, cheesy gratin. They’re still packed with nutrition, and they make a great side dish for the holidays. Plus, broccoli has such a beautiful crisp green color. It’s like eating a gorgeous tree, trunks detached. Who could resist?
Broccoli Au Gratin
- Two big broccoli heads cut into florets
- 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
- 4 tablespoons of flour
- ¼ cup of milk
- ¼ cup of cheddar cheese
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon of paprika
- 1 teaspoon of dry mustard
- 2 tablespoons of panko bread crumbs
- 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Boil broccoli for about 3-4 minutes, and transfer to a bowl of ice cold water. This technique helps to keep its color.
In a saucepan, melt butter. Add flour and whisk until it forms a paste. Add milk. Stir until the sauce is thick to the point that it covers the back of a spoon. Take off of the burner and add ¼ cup of cheddar cheese. Stir. Place broccoli into a casserole dish. Coat with sauce and fold in the broccoli. Top with parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. Bake for 30 minutes.
