Loved the flavour of the cheese and onion, but like one other person, I too found the sauce a bit runny. Wonder if I drained it well enough or should have let it sit in a strainer for a bit. I will add a bit more cornstarch the next time I make this.

This was easy to make . I didn't bake it but simmered on the top of the stove. The sauce was really thick and needed to be thinned out a bit. Could have used a bit more salt. Simmering the broccoli for 3-5 minutes was too much. The broccoli was mushy. Next time I'll simmer only 2 min.

I thought this was a great side dish. The sauce was thick and creamy and I did cut back on the onion a bit but over all easy and great.

Did not care for this at all. The onion overwhelmed the broccoli and, contrary to ConnieK, we found the sauce too runny.

This was good. The sauce came out thicker than I expected, could use more liquid in it. May add a little chicken broth the next time I make it.

This recipe was good, but nothing special. It works though if you're just looking for a standard broccoli cheese recipe.
