Crunchy Bacon Broccoli
This was a nice twist to our average weekly side of broccoli with dinner.
Here is what you'll need:
1 bunch broccoli (about 2-3 cups)
2 pieces extra crispy bacon, crumbled
1/4 c cashews, chopped
1/4 teasp garlic powder
1/2 lemon zest
2 tbsp Olive oil, melted butter/ghee or bacon fat
1/4 cup grated parmesan (optional)
1/4 teasp pepper
Heat the oven to 400. Cut the broccoli into small florets and place on a greased cookie sheet. Drizzle the olive oil/butter/bacon fat over all of the broccoli, then toss to make sure there is a nice coat on all florets. Bake for about 15-20 minutes until the tips of the florets become crispy or brown. While that is cooking, combine all other ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Once the broccoli is done, toss in the nut, bacon and seasoning mixture and serve warm. It's yummy!
