Bacon Broccoli

Ever get in a rut where certain foods just don't sound appetizing?  That was broccoli for me this fall/early winter.  Until I made this dish, which quickly become a weekly staple and go-to dish for sharing with friends.



Bacon Broccoli
adapted from Anna
serves 2-4

I don't measure anymore and the recipe is pretty forgiving, so if it looks like you need more bacon, use it (the thickness of slices can be deceiving).  Mix it up with cauliflower or brussels sprouts instead of broccoli.  Use pecans or pumpkin/sunflower seeds instead of walnuts.

8c broccoli florets
2-3T chopped walnuts
1 1/2t garlic powder
1/4t fine sea salt
~3T olive oil
3-4 slices nitrate-free bacon

Preheat oven to 400deg.

In a large bowl, combine broccoli, walnuts, garlic powder and salt.  Pour in olive oil and toss, adding enough oil so that the broccoli isn't dry.  Transfer to a cookie sheet (or two) so it's in a single layer.

Using scissors, cut bacon into ~1/2" slices and sprinkle over broccoli.  Bake, 30-40min, stirring every 15min.  Transfer to a dish and serve.



What's your favorite way to enjoy broccoli?

Love it! I feel like roasting completely transforms broccoli.

Erica said...

Yum! Simple veggie dishes are best. I actually love broccoli raw, steamed or roasted with a little red pepper

Joanne said...

Pretty sure this would get anyone excited about eating their broccoli!

Kristen said...

i love roasted broccoli! (basically any roasted veggie...)

Hannah said...

Bacon really does make everything better, huh? ;) In my case, it would be coconut bacon of course, but the concept is still the same. This dish would be an easy sell around here, even for the veggie-haters!

My favorite way of eating broccoli is just plain roasted but I know how bacon makes everything better!

Great post. Articles that have meaningful and insightful comments are more enjoyable, at least to me. It’s interesting to read what other people thought and how it relates to them or their clients, as their perspective could possibly help you in the future.

There's always something great to watch with Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. Choose from popular movies and full seasons of hit TV shows. Enjoy a wide variety of choices, including Action & Adventure, Comedy, Kids & Family, Documentaries, and more. Plus, there are never any commercials.

While seeing generally, if you are looking for more content and entertainment, you can go for Hotstar. If you are always exploring something new to watch, you can go for Netflix. If you want to have the common ground between this two, you can opt for amazon prime.
