What we have here is a great side dish. Perfect for any Holiday meal or just to
go with weeknight dinner. I have a thing for baked potatoes with broccoli and
cheese and one day I was thinking how could I make a mashed potato version?
I came up with this and it was truly awesome. I hope you enjoy!

1 large head fresh broccoli - cut into florets
