Easy Broccoli Casserole Recipe

Small Portion – Four Servings

 

This is an oldie but goodie. I’ve made this recipe quite a few times since deciding to follow a low carb lifestyle. I initially found the recipe on “Linda Sue’s Low Carb” recipe page and it’s been a favorite since 2007 or 2008 or so. I like it because it’s quite flavorful, easy to make, holds well in the refrigerator, and heats up like a charm which means the leftovers are good. It’s a little higher in fat, which some people may want to reduce, so ground chicken, ground turkey, and low fat cheese may work. I like ground turkey so I would try it that way, but ground chicken is far too bland and may not work well for this. It’s worth a try though.

Ingredients

1 pound of ground beef (substitute ground turkey or ground chicken)

1 medium or large fresh broccoli crown

1 small tub of cream cheese

2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese

1.4 cup of heavy cream or half/half if you want a creamier casserole (optional)

1/4 yellow onion

1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese for topping

2 teaspoons of minced garlic

1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes

4 to 5 slices of chopped bacon

Morton’s Nature Seasoning to taste

salt to taste
