  • 16 ounces broccoli florets
  • Kosher salt & black pepper, to taste

  • 8 ounces Black Creek® Sharp Cheddar Cold Pack Cheese Food cheese spread


  1. Add about 1 inch of water to small pot over medium heat; bring to a boil. Add in broccoli florets and cover with lid. Steam for 3 to 4 minutes or until broccoli is fork tender. Drain water, sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Heat small saucepot over low heat; add milk and cayenne pepper. Bring milk to a scald (small bubbles begin to appear around outside edges), then add half of Cheddar cheese spread and stir gently. Once cheese begins to soften, whisk until smooth.
