Outback Broccoli and Cheese

by Alyona's Cooking

Outback Steakhouse serves steamed broccoli in a creamy cheese sauce garnished with a Monterey Jack blend cheese. It is one delicious side! Served best with steak it can side with almost any meal!

This broccoli and cheese side comes together so quickly! Cheez Whiz is used along with real grated cheese but if you want to skip the jarred cheese sauce, making a homemade version is easy too. When ordering this at Outback, you’ll notice the creamy cheese sauce is ever so lightly used along with grated cheese. You do not want the broccoli to drown in the cheese sauce, so a little goes a long way.

What can I substitute Cheez Whiz with?

Cheese whiz is a jarred cheese sauce that can be used for dips, sauces and much more. If you prefer homemade cheese sauce, making a roux with a little cream and cheese will substitute well. Remember you don’t want the broccoli to drown in the cheese sauce so a little portion is all you need.
