Found this recipe uninteresting. I had thought the bacon would given it a bit of added flavour but it just didn't work for me. I will not try this again

Did exactly to the directions and turned out great. I didn't add the bacon because I served it with salmon but topped it with shredded Parmesan cheese.

We eat paleo 75% of the time. We love broccoli and the bacon bits made it better.
