A basic white sauce forms the base for this easy cheese and mushroom sauce, and it makes a nice topping for the cooked broccoli spears.

What You'll Need

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 ounces mushrooms (sliced)
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon mustard

  • 1/2 cheddar cheese (or American, shredded)
