Recipe: Keto Creamy Broccoli and Bacon

Keto Creamy Broccoli and Bacon

Creamy, garlicky and cheesy basically sums up my life. Over the past few months, I have been sharing my favorite keto recipe and this one is another delicious addition to my collection.

Because the broccoli is cooked in a garlic and creamy sauce, it tastes just like pasta and is great when you’re craving pasta!  It’s high in fat, low in carbs and will keep you full for a couple of hours. It makes a great side dish or a main dish thanks to the addition of bacon. It all comes together in one dish in just about 20 minutes.
