Bacon makes everything better! Crumbling a few pieces of the good stuff over this dish adds so much flavor while staying low on calories and fat.

How to Make It

Place broccoli florets in a large saucepan of boiling water. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender; drain. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon; cook until crisp. Remove bacon slices from pan with a slotted spoon; crumble. Add broccoli, bacon, pepper, and salt to bacon drippings in pan; cook 1 minute, tossing to coat broccoli.
