Broccoli, Bacon, and Blue Cheese Melt

    A delicious savory combination with strong flavors! If you are cooking for a crowd, the broccoli and melted blue cheese makes a great side dish for the rest of the family.

    50 g 40% heavy cream

    24 g broccoli, cooked

    12 g bacon, Smithfield, no sugar added, cooked, crumbled

    11 g olive oil

    10 g blue cheese, crumbled

    Optional: salt/pepper

    After measuring all ingredients on a gram scale, combine half of the heavy cream with the broccoli, crumbled bacon, olive oil, and blue cheese in a microwavable bowl. Heat in the microwave until the cheese has melted and is warmed through, in 30-second intervals. Stir to combine the cream, oil, and cheese to create the sauce. Add the salt and pepper if desired.

    Notes: You can easily replace the bacon with grilled beef tenderloin in this recipe, and you will need to recalculate the recipe to increase the meat and fat if you use a lean cut.

    Serve some of the oil on the side if preferred.
