If you like the taste of smoky chipotle peppers, you’ll probably like this dish; if not, you probably won’t. It came out delicious as we both love that flavor! I served this dish with butter-seared pork chops, as I didn’t want any competing flavors. There are already a lot of flavor layers in this recipe. This dish is suitable for all phases of Atkins, other Keto diets and for those Primal diners that consume occasional cheese. This dish is not suitable for Paleo eaters.
VARIATION: Substitute cauliflower for the broccoli.

4 c. raw broccoli, cut into chunks
6 oz. raw bacon, cut into ½” pieces
4 oz. red onion, chopped or sliced
4 large mushrooms, sliced
¼ c. my Chipotle Mayonnaise
1½ c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese (or cheese of your choice)
DIRECTIONS: Cut broccoli into small-medium chunks. Steam over boiling water for 5 minutes or cook in the microwave in shallow water for 3 minutes on HI. Remove and drain well. Preheat oven to 350º. While broccoli is cooking, saute the bacon in a skillet over high heat until nearly done. Drain solids on paper towels. In the remaining bacon grease, saute the onion until nearly tender. Add mushrooms and continue sauteing until translucent. Turn heat off. Place onion/bacon mixture and broccoli into a large bowl. Add 1 cup of the cheese, the chipotle mayo and toss to coat all of the mixture well. Pour all into a greased 8×11 casserole dish and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese. Garnish with tomato slices if desired (optional and not included in numbers below). Bake at 350º for 30 minutes.
