Welcome to Kattz Kitchen! You’re invited to go on a journey with me as I learn my way around the kitchen featuring recipes so easy even I can’t F them up.
Today we’re making Cheesy Broccoli & Cheese. My mom made this a few weeks ago when I was visiting for Thanksgiving. It turned out amazing, which isn’t surprising because my mom is an incredible cook. What is surprising is how I can carry her DNA and still have zero cooking skills. But….I’m on a mission to change that…. so today we’re attemping to recreate my mom’s super yummy soup.
KATTZ KITCHEN: CHEESY BROCCOLI & CHEESE SOUP:
- 1/2 stick of margarine (or maybe it’s butter, I’m not 100% on the difference between these too melty yellow sticks)
- 1 onion, chopped
- Garlic (you’re on your own here. I like garlic and don’t care if I stink so I used a lot.
- 5 Chicken Bouillon Cubes (WTF, I had to ask a friendly man at the store what and where this is)
- 2 (10-oz) pkgs frozen chopped broccoli. (I used a 22-oz bag because I’m a rebel)
- 1 (8-oz) pkg med. egg noodles
- 5 cups milk (or 3 if you’re me)
- 32 oz Velveeta Cheese, cubed (I went rogue here and did half regular Velveeta and half Velveeta Queso Blanca)
Here’s what you’ll do with all that stuff:
Find a pot….not a small pot….not a big pot…just a regular medium-ish pot. (Do not smoke pot or you’ll eat everything else in the house before this dish is cooked)
Melt margarine (butter, whatevs) over medium heat. Add onions and garlic, saute about 5 minutes until tender. Add water and bouillon cubes; stir to dissolve. Bring to boil. Add frozen broccoli then simmer for about 5 minutes (longer if you’re like me and have ADD and forget to set timer)
REMEMBER to drink wine while cooking. This is an important step.
Add the milk and velveeta then simmer until the cheese melts. Season to taste. (I added Garlic Salt)
Result: I turned out GREAT! Not as great as my mom’s but still very good!
