Directions

1. To make the Creamy Garlic Parmesan Broccoli with Bacon: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Fry the bacon in a large oven-safe skillet (we like cast-iron) over medium heat until crispy. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to soak up some of the fat.

3. Drain most of the bacon fat from the pan, leaving about 1 tablespoon. In the same skillet, melt the butter, then add the broccoli florets and season with salt and pepper. Scrap up any browned bacon bits from the bottom of the pan, and cook while stirring occasionally, for about 6 minutes.

4. Add in the garlic and stir it through the broccoli for a minute, until fragrant. Add the cream, softened cream cheese, chicken stock, half the grated cheeses, and paprika. Reduce heat down to low and allow to simmer until tender–approx. 3-4 minutes, stirring until smooth.

5. Add the fried bacon back in and give everything a good mix to combine all of the flavors together. Top the creamy broccoli and bacon with the remaining grated parmesan and mozzarella.

6. Bake for about 15 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and broccoli is done to your liking. You can set the oven to broil for the last 2 minutes, to crisp up the top.

7. Remove the Creamy Garlic Parmesan Broccoli with Bacon from the oven. Season with a little extra pepper, and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley. Enjoy!
