Broccoli with Cheese Topping

from a BMCC member.

Thought you might like to try a recipe that my Mom
passed on to me. It is very delicious, and easy to
make, especially during the holidays.

Broccoli with Cheese Topping:

The swiss cheese topping, melts into the broccoli as
it heats in the oven.

1 bunch (2lbs) broccoli
salted water
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/3 cup real mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons grated onion
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard (I use dijon)

Wash broccoli, separate into spears, and trim off tough ends;
peel stems, if you wish. In a large frying pan with a tight
fitting lid, bring water to boiling;drop in broccoli. Bring
to boiling again;cover pan, reduce heat and cook 5
minutes longer, or until broccoli is just tender crisp when
pierced with a fork. Drain and arrange broccoli in a
heat proof platter or shallow baking dish (one you can
bring to the table) You can do this several hours ahead and let
stand at room temperature.

In a small bowl, combine cheese, mayo, onion, salt,
pepper, and mustard. Spoon cheese mixture evenly over the top
of the broccoli. Place dish, uncovered, in a 350 degree
oven until broccoli is hot and sauce is melted, about 15 minutes.

Serve at once. Makes 4-6 servings.
