Broccoli Macaroni and Cheese

broccoli macaroni and cheese recipeToday we are recovering from a great weekend. We played hard and got some relaxation in there too. Wes and I were able to get a night away from our children and made a staycation out of it. We stayed at the gorgeous Sofitel Hotel near the White House. We had a nice dinner, enjoyed the beautiful bar, and had an amazing brunch the next day at Farmers Fishers Bakers in Georgetown. Before we headed home, we picked up some cupcakes from my favorite cupcake shop baked & wired to enjoy as we watched the game. Beyonce and a Ravens win? It was a great weekend indeed.

    This recipe looks delish! I do have one question. The ingredients say butter, divided, yet I don’t see the division of butter in the recipe. Can you tell me how much of the butter to use each time the recipe calls for butter? Thank you!

    1. bakedbree

      Just a little to brush the pan with. Or just use spray. And all of the butter into the sauce.
