Roasted Broccoli & Bacon Alfredo

Roasted Broccoli and Bacon Alfredo 2


I am more than a little obsessed with roasted broccoli at the moment. It’s so easy to make and my whole family loves it, so I’ve been making it a few times a week. For this recipe, I decided to jazz it up a bit with crumbled bacon and a rich, creamy alfredo sauce. This might be my new favorite low carb side dish!

Roasted Broccoli & Bacon Alfredo


  • 8 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, toss broccoli with oil, salt and pepper. Spread out in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Roast 20 to 30 minutes, depending on how dark you like it.
  3. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Reduce heat to low, add the cream, pepper, and salt and bring to just a simmer. Add Parmesan and continue to cook until thickened, about 3 or 4 minutes.
  4. Add broccoli and bacon to pot. Stir to combine.
