Attachging edge glue table top to buffet table

I'm starting to do research on how to attach my edge glued top to the frame of my buffet table. I wanted the table top to go up higher than originally planned. So I put 1/2 sheet of plywood down on the top of the buffet frame. Then was going to screw from underneath though the plywood to the edge glue table top.

Then I was reading I need to allow for expansion of the wood. So this lead me to ask the question on how to attach the table top to the base of my buffet frame.

What is the best way to attach edge glued boards to my base?

I believe A method could be to place screws through the plywood into the center board via a drilled hole. Then the screws to either side of the center board would placed through a slot created in the plywood versus a hole. These slots would allow the top to move. The center screw can be fixed to allow the top to stay centered but expand and contract from the center. Hope this makes sense.

If there is a back on the buffet, the tight holes should be next to the back and the slotted holes toward the front, if there is no back then do as suggested above in post #2.
