8 – 10 oz. fresh broccoli 1 ½ tbsp. butter 4 oz. shredded cheddar cheese ¼ tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Boil broccoli in salted water until very soft. Drain the broccoli, squeezing out excess water through the colander. In the same pot, add butter, drained broccoli, cheese, and salt. Mix well. Pour mixture into an 8 X 8 square metal cake pan, lined with parchment paper. Smash the broccoli mixture to fill the square pan. It will be about as thick as a pancake. Bake uncovered in oven for 20 minutes. Slice into 4 squares.
Note: This recipe can be doubled in the same pan to serve 4.
