A recipe~

A friend asked for the recipe for Golden Cheddar Broccoli Bake and I had a few moments, so thought I would post it. Enjoy~

4 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup corn flake crumbs (my mom used bread crumbs and they were just as delicious!)
1-12 oz. can whole kernel corn (my mom cut corn off the cob when she made it :)
2-10 oz. pkgs. frozen broccoli spears, cooked and drained (fresh broccoli from the garden is even better!)

Melt 2 Tbsp. butter, then stir in the flour and salt. Add milk gradually and mix until smooth. Cook this mixture until it boils--stirring constantly. Add the cheese and stir until it's all melted. Mix in 1/4 cup of corn flake crumbs (or bread crumbs), then add the corn. Arrange the broccoli in 11 3/4 x 7 1/2 inch baking dish. Pour cheese sauce over broccoli. Toss remaining 1/2 cup crumbs with 2 Tbsp. melted butter. Sprinkle over the casserole and bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.
