Recipe: Bacon-wrapped broccoli


Back to the

Here's another thingy I came up with on the spur of the moment while looking for interesting food combinations. Steam some broccoli florets until they're barely softened. While they're cooking take some bacon strips and divide them in four, cutting once across the middle and once the long way, so you end up with four smaller, thin strips. You'll need one of these strips for each floret. Let the broccoli cool just enough that you can handle it safely, and wrap the bacon around the stem, pinning it in place with a toothpick.  (If the bacon will go around the crown, that's good too.) Then microwave everything for a minute and a half. If you need to cook it more so the bacon will be done enough, do so 30 seconds at a time. When the bacon is cooked press off the excess grease with a paper towel. Eat right off the toothpick.
