    This is a great dish that I threw together one day when a friend requested Broccoli au Gratin for her birthday dinner. The eggs can be taken out without ruining the sauce, and using skim milk and fat-free cheese works well, too. It's basically a great recipe that can be easily altered according to taste. Enjoy!

    Serves: 7 

    • 8 cups fresh broccoli
    • 125g butter
    • 2 tablespoons plain flour
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 1 1/4 cups (285ml) milk
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 4 cups (450g) grated Swiss cheese
    • 2 eggs, beaten

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees C.
    2. Place broccoli in a steamer over 2cm of boiling water and cover. Cook until tender but still firm, about 2 to 6 minutes. Drain.
    3. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat and add flour; cook until bubbly. Stir in onion and gradually add milk, stirring well. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper. Stir in cheese and eggs; mix well. Combine mixture with broccoli and transfer to a 23x33cm casserole dish.
    4. Cook in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
