Personal Notes:
We had this every year growing up for any holiday gathering and it was the first dish I ever took to a pot-luck meal. I think it was a sports banquet and my Mom was out of town. I didn't tell anyone it was mine until it was all gone...was afraid it wouldn't turn out. It's delicious if you love cheese and broccoli...and if you love broccoli you love it with cheese...am I right?!?
My grandmother and aunt didn't do the saucepan step and melt the ingredients together...saves time, still tastes great but it's not my preference...
