I made these for Christmas Day lunch, I was so glad that even the children, not generally adventurous, enjoyed them! I prepared them ahead of time, up to step 5, cooked them shortly before serving, and chose to serve them in the ramekins I had cooked them in. Made in the microwave, instructions are based on a 650/700 watt microwave, mine is a little bigger, so I adjusted times accordingly, cooking for slightly less time. Lovely presentation, smooth creamy taste with a hint of mustard, very easy to prepare, I was impressed with these. From "Christmas Microwave Know-how"

This is a truly FANTASTIC recipe. I couldn't think of anything to do with the other 2 whites so I beat them up & folded them in. Worked wonderfully. I plan on making this as a first course at Christmas dinner. Both dd & the almost ex suggested adding some parmesan. Made for Culinary Quest 2014/CCQ.<br/>I want to add that I think this would well with several different veggies - cauliflower, spinach, just to name a couple.

Wow. . .these are like restaurant fancy Karen! I have to admit that I just threw everything in the blender, gave it a whirl and dumped it into ramekins. Mine were cooked after about 4 minutes in the microwave. I added a little Spike seasoning and some dried onion flakes. I also subbed non-fat plain yogurt for the creme (I was out) and it was undetectable. THANKS! Made for MAKE MY RECIPE.

We pretty much like broccoli any ol' way (except, perhaps, limp but whole!) & this was no exception ~ VERY, VERY NICE! I did, however, make one addition, in that just before serving I topped each serving with a steamed piece of broccoli & a small cherry tomato! Will definitely be making this again!
