Keto Broccoli Casserole with Parmesan and Bacon
The sauce is BOSS in this dish! It's creamy with just the right amount of cheese, and the garlic gives it such a great flavor!
Servings: 6 servings
- 6 cups broccoli florets
- 5 slices bacon chopped
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup onion diced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese grated
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1/4 tsp xanthan gum optional
Steam the broccoli until bright green but still has a bit of crunch to it. About 3 minutes in the microwave in a bowl with 1/4 cup of water and covered tightly with plastic wrap.
Fry the bacon in a skillet until crisp. Set the bacon aside and remove all but 1 tbsp of bacon fat.
Add the butter, onions, and garlic and sautee until the onion is translucent. About 5 minutes at medium high heat.
Add the cream to the skillet and simmer for 2-3 minutes to thicken slightly. Thicken with xanthan gum if you like.
Return the bacon to the pan and add the parmesan cheese. Combine well. Add the drained and steamed broccoli and stir to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
Put the broccoli and cream mixture into a casserole dish. Top with the mozzarella cheese and bake at 400-F for about 5 minutes until hot and bubbly and the cheese is golden brown. Serve!
