Steam broccoli til nearly done (tender but not mushy). Put it in a baking dish & salt to taste. You may want to put a little butter on it too if you want to.
In a small-to-medium mixing bowl, beat 2 egg whites with a mixer til it forms soft peaks. Fold in about 1/4 to 1/2 cup mayonnaise (depends how much broccoli you're using) and 1-2 cups grated cheddar and/or swiss cheese. Mix that together gently (don't w
ant those egg whites to break down altogether) & spread it over the cooked broccoli in a baking dish. Bake uncovered in a preheated 400 degree oven until lightly golden brown (depends on how hot your over really is -- usually about 5 to 10 minutes).
If you're fixing this for a lot of broccoli (like for 6 people) you may want to use 3 egg whites.
Tip: room temperature eggs yield the most egg whites when you separate them from the yolks & beat up the highest.
This is also good on steamed asparagus.
