Recipe Directions for Skinny Broccoli Mac n Cheese

  3. In a large, heavy skillet, melt butters. Add onion and cook over low heat about 2 minutes, add flour and cook another minute, or until the flour is golden and well combined. Add milk and chicken broth and whisk, raising heat to medium-high until it comes to a boil; cook about 5 minutes or until the sauce becomes smooth and thick. Season with salt and pepper.

  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, then broil for a few minutes to get the breadcrumbs golden.
