Broccoli with Bacon & Chives

Broccoli is my 4 year old’s favorite vegetable (shocking, isn’t it?)

Since I make broccoli so frequently, I’m always looking for a ways to spice it up, but still keep it kid friendly.  In this recipe, the boring steamed broccoli gets all dressed up with bacon and chives, but still has a healthy dose of parmesan for the kids!

Broccoli with Bacon & Chives

1 medium crown of broccoli, cut in florets
1 ½ slices thick cut bacon, cooked, cut and crumbled
1 small bunch of chives, cut
2-3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

Place 1-2 inches of water into a medium sized pot of water & bring to a boil.  Place the broccoli into the pot (in a steam basket, if you have one) and cover.  Steam for 3-4 minutes; drain and place in a bowl.

Mix the bacon, chives and parmesan into the broccoli and serve.

Serves 2-3
