Broccoli Cheddar Pot Pies

For entrees this year we wanted to do something small, because at Christmas there is always so much food, appetizers and desserts. To accomplish that we made these broccoli cheddar pot pies, they won't leave you feeling deprived, but will leave plenty of room for sides and dessert after the meal.

This recipe is from Oh My Veggies.

-1 cup milk
-3 tbsp flour
-4 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
-4 cups steamed broccoli
-1 sheet puff pastry
-1 egg, whisked
-cooking spray
-salt and pepper

Combine the milk and flour in a sauce pan over medium heat, whisking constantly until the mixture is thickened. Remove from the heat and whisk in the cheddar cheese until melted. Add the seasoning.

Mix the steamed broccoli into the cheddar sauce. Pour into prepared ramekins. You'll want to spray each ramekin with cooking spray before pouring the cheese/broccoli mixture into them. Top each ramekin with puff pastry. Brush each with egg wash and cut an X into the top to vent (we forgot that step).

Bake at 425 for 12-14 minutes and serve immediately.


I really liked the individual servings of these, they were a good size. I wish we had cut an X into the top in order to vent the steam, I think if we had done so the cheddar sauce wouldn't have exploded out of the top of our broccoli cheddar pot pies. The flavor of these was good, broccoli and cheese is always a good combination.
