Potato and Brocolli Bake

The only way that I love broccoli is with cheese. In that respect, I am a total child, but I don’t care. This is a great easy way to make a potato bake with broccoli with loads of cheese.

Ingredients

  • 4 potatoes
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup grated cheese

Method

  • Parboil the potatoes for about 30 minutes, then remove from the boil and allow to cool.
  • Preheat the oven at 180ºC.
  • Cut the broccoli florets and place in the bottom of an oven proof dish.
  • Melt the butter in a small pot.
  • Mix in the flour and cook for a few minutes, cooking the flour and butter mixture.
  • Slowly add the milk while mixing into the flour and butter mixture.
  • Stir continuously until the sauce starts to thicken, then  add the paprika and half the cheese.
  • Slice the potato into chunky slices.
  • Pour some of the sauce over the broccoli in the dish, then layer with a layer of potato slices, then a layer of sauce.
  • Layer the potato and sauce and finish with a layer of sauce.
  • Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top and bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 180ºC.
