3 tbsp butter or margerine
Mash together in a pot to form a paste
Add in 1/2 tsp dry mustard if you wish, it adds tang. Do not add French's Flavine Yellow mustard, not tranferrable
Add in some pepper.
Pour in two cups of cold milk or half and half ( dear god!)
Heat while whisking.
It will get thick and ubbly or bubbly as I meant to say.
Let it cook for a minute on low.
Grate 2 cups of old cheddar the colour of cheetos if'n you like yours orange.
Add in and stir until melted.
It's go time girly!
Straight to the broccoli.
Make sure the broccoli really drains well, because it tends to hold water and that is nasty to the cheese sauce, NASTY I say!
It is the food of gods.
Love your mom even if you don't like her.
