Roasted Broccoli and Canadian Bacon
3 Large Heads of Broccoli
1/3 Cup Pure Olive
1 Teaspoon additive free Garlic Powder
1 Teaspoon MSG free Seasoning Salt (I use Lawry’s)
4-5 slices of Gluten Free Canadian Bacon
Optional-1/2 Cup Freshly grated Asiago Cheese
Preheat oven to 400* F.
Wash and drain broccoli. Then cut broccoli florets into a 9×13 inch baking pan. Drizzle oil over broccoli, tossing to completely coat florets in oil. Spread broccoli out in pan so that it is only one layer deep. Sprinkle garlic powder and seasoning salt evenly over florets. Using kitchen shears, cut Canadian bacon in ½ inch pieces over broccoli. Place pan in oven and bake for 20 minutes. Then turn broccoli and bacon so that it can brown on the other side. Bake another 10-15 minutes or until tips of florets are turning brown and stems are tender. Remove from oven top with cheese and serve. Enjoy!
Variations: Add chopped pistachios or pine nuts.
Replace the Asiago with Parmesan ( you can also add the cheese the last 5 minutes of baking time to brown the cheese.)
If you really like garlic, replace the garlic powder with sliced garlic and let it roast along with broccoli.
