Really good basic recipe. I didn't have broccoli but did have a head of cauliflower so used that. I also had a couple pieces of cheese that needed to be used: colby jack mozzarella and some cheddar. So used all three to get the full amount o f cheese. Came out very well indeed. I can see this sauce being the base for a variety of "au gratin" dishes. Thanks
I added 2 poached chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces panko bread crumbs rather than wheat bread 1 diced shallot & reduced the cheese to 1 cup. Very tasty but time consuming to prepare. Will make again when I have more time. Glad I have leftovers.
I haven't made this yet because I have some questions. I have very high cholesterol and blood pressure and need to make dietary changes. Do you think it would change the taste too much if I switched out butter for Benecol white whole wheat flour for regular flour and 2% cheese? Thanks.
