The only thing I did differently was use fresh broccoli and cooked it using a little bit of leftover bacon drippings. AMAZING


In deference to Hubs' sensitive innards, I had to skip the crushed red pepper flakes and used some fresh ground black pepper instead. I used fresh broccoli, added a little clarified butter along with the olive oil and some minced garlic right at the end of cooking so it wouldn't burn. Some of the best broccoli we 've ever had.


This was really good and couldn't be easier, and probably the only way I will prepare frozen broccoli from now on...I added 2 cloves of chopped garlic to the pan and also sprinkled with parm cheese before serving. Loved that I was able to get normally mushy frozen broccoli crispy and yummy, thank you!
