We guess we were lucky in that we never had a problem eating vegetables. We never thought they were gross or icky, never rejected eating something green, and generally liked having veggies in our diet. That’s remained true throughout the years and, while we like to let the veggies stand alone sometimes – in a salad or roasted on their own – it’s nice to have recipes on hand to dress them up and really make them the main event. Which is just what this fried onion cheesy broccoli bake is all about!
Okay, so yes there’s two pounds of broccoli in here, but this is definitely not a whole-30-really-good-for-you-type veggie dish. This is chock full of bacon, cheese and heavy cream, and we wouldn’t have it any other way, since this stuff tastes amazing. It’s creamy, cheesy, crispy (thanks to the bacon) and full of flavor…everyone goes nuts for it! Ooh, one other thing – our favorite part of this whole thing, actually. We top this bad boy off with perfectly crunchy fried onions. Yummmm.
Sooo maybe don’t make this dish multiple times a week (because: waistlines), but definitely DO make this for when you’ve got friends over or for when you want a memorable, delicious family dinner. It’s a scene-stealing show stopper, so take comfort in knowing that it’ll probably overshadow, in the best way possible, anything else you serve with it; it’s just so good, you really can’t go wrong.
