DIRECTIONS

  • Bring pan of water to a boil, add broccoli and allow to cook until crunch is mostly gone, but not soggy.
  • While broccoli cooks, melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and carrot and cook 2 minutes (until onion is clear but not browned), stirring frequently.
  • Stir in the stock and 3/4 cup of the milk and all of the cream. Heat the mixture to boiling.
  • Whisk the flour into the remaining milk and add to the boiling liquid. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook 1 minute, stirring occasionally.
  • Reduce the heat; add the salt, pepper, and slowly add cheese, allowing to melt before adding more (about 1/3 of cheese each time.) Add broccoli and cooked bacon.
  • Allow to cook about 5 minutes on low, then remove from the heat and stir in the sour cream.
  • Top with spoonful of sour cream, crumbled bacon, shredded cheese, and a little diced tomato.
