Broccoli-Onion Deluxe

1 pound fresh broccoli, or 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen cut broccoli
2 cups frozen small whole onions, or 3 medium onions, quartered
1⁄4 cup butter or margarine, divided
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper

Cook onions in boiling salted water until tender; drain and set aside.

In saucepan, melt half of the butter; blend in flour, salt and pepper. Add milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat and blend in cream cheese until smooth.
