Easy Broccoli Gratin

I got this recipe from my wonderful mother-in-law who is a fabulous cook. I have really learned so much from her! She got this recipe from a dear friend of hers, and I hope they don't mind that I'm sharing it with the Nummies world (population 8). It's a great way to jazz up a side of broccoli and to trick kids into getting their veggie serving. Even if they don't like greens, they are sure to love this!

{What you need}
about 1 lb. fresh broccoli flowerets
(a little less than a whole bag fresh broccoli from Costco)
about 1/3 cup mayonnaise
about 2 teaspoons mustard
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 pound swiss cheese
(or your cheese of choice. Cheddar is great, too.)

Steam the broccoli for only a few minutes, make sure there's still a little crunch to it. Place in a greased 9x13 baking dish. In a separate bowl, combine mayo and mustard. Add the cheese. "Glop" (I don't know how else to describe this process) the cheese mixture onto the broccoli and make sure it is evenly glopped around. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Serve with your favorite main dish!
