Creamy Broccoli Bake

Sharing is Caring

This Creamy Broccoli Bake Recipe is a tasty casserole type dish with bacon, cheese and a garlic cream sauce.

I personally love veggies. But when your a kid they seem like a punishment to eat them. Sure there are some more tolerable then others but for whatever reason they tend to be the last thing to be finished on a kids plate.

I am sure there is a mother reading this that would disagree cause she has the one child on the planet who loves all things vegetable, but for the rest of us, there is Creamy Broccoli Bake. Its flavorful, creamy, cheesy and perfect for a family dinner. I serve mine with some warm bread from the oven because we like to rip off a piece and dunk it in to the creamy goodness. Whats not to like?

What You’ll Need to Make Creamy Broccoli Bake:

Two large bundles of fresh broccoli or 1 lbs of broccoli

1 -12 0z (340g) package of bacon

2 tbs (15g) of flour

3 cups (710g) of cream

1- 8 oz (227g) package of grated mozzarella cheese

2 tbs (33g)of minced garlic

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Cut up bacon into bite sized pieces, in a skillet cook until crisp.

In a separate pot, steam broccoli crowns until cook evenly but be careful not to overcook set aside.

Add the flour to the bacon pan and whisk into the grease until blended.

Slowly add the cream while whisking over low heat. Make sure to allow the cream to thicken before adding more.

Add half the cheese and mix evenly.

Salt and pepper if desired.

Add garlic and let simmer for about a minute or until cream is thickened. Add the broccoli to the pan. Mix to coat evenly.

Top with remaining cheese and pop under the broiler under medium heat until cheese is brown slightly.

Once done, allow to cool before serving.
