Broccoli and Cheese Bake

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!
