  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add broccoli, cover, and steam until tender, 2 to 4 minutes.

  • Melt margarine in a saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and stir until mixed. Slowly add the milk, stirring to prevent lumps. Cook until white sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes.

  • Combine broccoli, eggs, mayonnaise, and onion in a baking dish; cover with white sauce and stir to combine.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese on top and bake until set, about 15 minutes more.

Saute the onion in the butter before you make the roux. Cut down the flour to two tablespoons, then follow as directed except add 1/2 c shredded cheese to the mixture. Sprinkle another 1/2 c on top after you've turned everything out into the casserole. Read More

We made this and followed the directions but also some of the suggestions to add more onion, garlic, extra cheese etc but still found that it was VERY bland. I considered ways of making this recipe more flavorful but have just decided to search for a new recipe base for our next time. Read More
