    WOW! So easy to make and absolutely delicious! I added a little bit more broth when it looked like it was all absorbed before I added the broccoli. Served it with chicken, but could have eaten this as a main entrée. I am looking forward to making this again! Family loved it too!

    I loved this. I used bacon bits which were easier that cooking bacon and it was so yummy!
