I began making this creamy side dish years ago as a way to get my kids to eat broccoli. They've since grown up, but still request this satisfying dish. It's truly a family favorite. —Barbara Uhl, Wesley Chapel, Florida

Ingredients

  • 4 bunches broccoli, cut into florets
  • 6 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped

  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1 large egg yolk, beaten
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Stir a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolk; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 1 minute longer. Remove from heat; stir in the cheese, salt and pepper. Pour over broccoli.
  4. In a small skillet, cook bread crumbs in remaining butter until golden brown; sprinkle over the top.
  5. Bake, uncovered, 15-18 minutes or until heated through.
