  2. I would like to ask a question, is corn starch GF? Sorry for my ignorance!

  3. Thank you very much for answering my question.

  4. Unless, I missed it, I didn’t see where it said when to put in the water & cornstarch.

    • Shirley Crabtree says:

      I have the same question Ann has – the recipe doesn’t say when to add the cornstarch/water blend. Do you add it to the broth before adding the broth in step #4?

    • you add the cornstarch blend in step 7. Thank you for pointing that out. Ill fix that!

  5. Actually, I made this yesterday( Cheesy Broccoli Bake ) and it’s delish, will make it for thanksgiving. Thank You very much!
