Cook the broccoli in a large pan of boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Refresh in cold water, drain and set aside.
To make the white sauce: melt the butter in a saucepan over a low heat. Add the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring continuously. Remove from the heat and slowly stir in the milk. Bring to the boil; reduce the heat and simmer, stirring until thickened. Season and add the nutmeg.
Preheat the oven to Gas mark 4-5, 180-190°C, 350-375°F.
Heat the oil in a large pan and cook the onion for 1-2 minutes or until soft. Add the lamb and warm through for 2-3 minutes. Add the broccoli and white sauce. Spoon into a 1.2L/2pint ovenproof dish.
Mix together the breadcrumbs and herbs, sprinkle over the lamb and bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
Serve with mixed vegetables.
For extra convenience buy a ready-made white sauce and replace fresh herbs with dried. For an extra treat add 60ml/4tbsp single cream to the white sauce.
