Blue Cheese Broccoli au Gratin

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Bring a large pot of water to boiling. Add broccoli florets; return to boil. Cook for 1 minute; drain well. Transfer broccoli florets to an extra-large bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan melt 4 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat. Add the flour; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Slowly whisk in the milk; cook and stir until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer about 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat; stir in 1/2 cup of the blue cheese, 1/2 cup of the Gruyere cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Pour over the broccoli, tossing to coat.
  3. Transfer the broccoli mixture to a 3-quart au gratin dish or baking dish. Sprinkle with bacon and the remaining 1/2 cup blue cheese and 1/2 cup Gruyere cheese.
  4. In a small bowl stir together bread crumbs; the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, melted; the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; and the chives. Sprinkle over broccoli mixture.
  5. Bake uncovered about 30 minutes or until bubbly and topping is browned. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
