This recipe is great as a side dish or a keto meal. There is nothing like broccoli cooked in a creamy garlic sauce topped with homemade cheese and bacon! If you can’t find the cheese in this recipe you can easily replace it with parmesan or manchego cheese. But my favorite cheese to use in this recipe is a cheese that one of our local producers makes with her fresh sheep's milk. I would say it tastes like bacon cheese!

½ cup raw bacon, diced

1 Tbsp butter

3 clove garlic, minced

2 pints or 1 quart canned broccoli, drained

1 cup heavy cream

¾ cup shredded Smochego

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a medium cast-iron skillet, over medium heat cook the bacon until slightly crispy. When done remove from the skillet and set aside. Add the butter, garlic, and broccoli to the hot pan and browns slightly. Add the heavy cream, cheese, and bacon and place the whole skillet in the oven, and bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
