Reviews for Broccoli with Cheese Sauce
"Wonderful recipe and a very healthy addition to any meal. The cheese sauce is easy to make. Don't try to hurry it or it will burn. A little of the sauce goes a long way. I didn't change a thing but one could add other seasonings to give it a little variety if so desired."
"Are you kidding me? This nasty sauce ruined some perfectly good broccoli. I'm going back to Cheeze-Whiz."
"We loved this recipe! It also works great as a warm dip for bread or other vegetables."
