This recipe was created  "on the fly" just prior to a demonstration when the host discovered that one of her guests was allergic to mushrooms and we had chosen the Mushroom Risotto. The host and I had the thought of bacon & brocolli instead and it worked perfectly on the night. Of course, I didn't take a photo of it then and I've had to make it 4 times to get the recipe right and remember to take a photo.


Hope you enjoy!

    Just cooked this one up tonight, turned out a bit gluggy and the broccoli was a bit too crunchy, but very tasty.  You know it tastes good when your 2 yr old asks for seconds tmrc_emoticons.)
