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!
8 cups fresh broccoli
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

Place broccoli in a steamer over 2cm of boiling water and cover. Cook until tender but still firm, about 2 to 6 minutes. Drain.
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.
