4 bunches broccoli, cut into florets.
6 tablespoons butter, divided.
1 small onion finely chopped.
1 garlic clove, minced.
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups 2% milk (or almond, soy or whole milk)
1 large egg yolk, beaten (or egg substitute)
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 400°. Place half broccoli in a steamer basket; place basket in a large saucepan over 1 in. water. Bring to a boil; cover and steam 3-4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Place in a greased 13×9-in. baking dish; repeat with remaining broccoli.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, melt 4 tablespoons butter. Add onion; cook and stir until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
Stir in flour until blended; gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. 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.
In a small skillet, cook breadcrumbs in remaining butter until golden brown; sprinkle over the top.
Bake, uncovered, 15-18 minutes or until heated through.
