Steamed Broccoli and Cheese

A good smothering of cheese sauce can make anything taste good.  But, there is some kind of magic that takes place when that thing being smothered is a steamed veggie.  The kind of magic that makes little non-veggie eaters eat their veggies and then even ask for more. 

16 oz. of frozen broccoli florets
4 T. of real un-salted butter (melted)
3/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
sea salt and fresh cracked pepper

-In a medium saucepan, covered and  over medium-high heat, steam the broccoli in a 1" of water for about  minutes 5 minutes.  You want it to be just a little bit tender, but still slightly firm.  Drain broccoli and place in a medium microwave-safe serving bowl.  Drizzle with melted butter and evenly sprinkle with the shredded cheese.  Place in microwave on high for 1 minute or until the cheese is nice and melted.  Remove dish with potholders, stir and add a healthy sprinkle of salt and pepper.  Serves 4-6.  Enjoy!
