Cheesy Broccoli Delight

READY IN: 11mins
Recipe by Helping Hands

I threw this together tonight to liven up our veggie side dish, and it turned out great! The measurements are approximate, since I just kind of threw it together without measuring, so feel free to experiment. I like it nice and cheesy, but please also feel free to adjust the cheese factor to your preference. This offers a nice twist on plain-ol broccoli for dinner! :-)

This was good and easy to make. I used organic broccoli and only about 2 cups of cheese. I didn't add the almonds but added more bacon bits then called for. Just added salt and pepper for seasoning. Nice, easy side dish that my whole family enjoyed.
