Nice and light side dish. Left overs are great heated up for breakfast.

Yum!! Very easy to put together, however, I was confused about the onions. I assumed they should be sauteed, but the instructions didn't note when, and I can't abide by raw onions. I ended up "cheating" and used dried minced onion and added it with the broccoli. It worked great. I increased the recipe so I could use up 5 egg whites. My husband and I and two kiddos (ages 4 and 1) ate nearly the whole thing for dinner. (I can't imagine that the original recipe could serve six.) Both of the kids loved it!
