Ingredients

  • 1 whole onion, diced
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/3 C flour
  • 4 C whole milk
  • 2 C Half and Half
  • 4 heads Broccoli cut into florets
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 3 C Gated cheese (mild, sharp cheddar, etc)
  • small dash of salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • Chicken broth if needed for thinning

Method

Step 1

Melt butter in a pot over medium heat, then add the onions. Cook the onions for 3 to 4 minutes, then sprinkle the flour over the top. Stir to combine and cook for 1 minute or so, then pour in milk and half-and-half. Add nutmeg, then add broccoli, a small dash of salt, and plenty of black pepper.

Step 2

Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender. Stir in cheese and allow to melt.

Step 3

Taste seasonings and adjust if needed. Then either serve as is, or mash it with a potato masher to break up the broccoli a bit, or transfer to a blender in two batches and puree completely. (If you puree it in a blender, return it to the heat and allow to heat up. Splash in chicken broth if needed for thinning.)
