Hello All! Just getting in the mood for St. Patrick’s Day!
The recipe today isn’t an Irish one – I could have done one as I have plenty – but this does have some GREEN in it. Broccoli! That’s a biggie around my house. The Royal Parents love broccoli so we always have some on hand. This recipe isn’t all about broccoli but it does have some in it along with lots of other yummy stuff!
Yes that’s actually the name of this one but I’m sure it can have a million names – this being just one of them…..you could also call it “DELICIOUS” which works for me! Might work for you too after you’ve made it once.
6 slices bacon
- Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9″-x-13″ baking dish with cooking spray. In a large skillet, cook bacon until crispy, about 8 minutes, then drain on a paper towel lined plate. Wipe skillet clean.
- In the same skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Whisk in flour and cook until bubbly, about 1 minute. Gradually stir in milk and bring to a simmer. Cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Whisk in cheese and cook until melted, 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper and stir in broccoli. Remove from heat.
- Spread broccoli mixture into the bottom of the baking dish, then top with chicken. Cut each biscuit into eighths and scatter on top of chicken. Chop bacon into small pieces and scatter on top of biscuits, then sprinkle with ranch seasoning.
- Bake until biscuits are golden and cooked through, about 25 minutes.
Casseroles are nice…………….there’s always leftovers when Mom makes a 9×13 casserole as it’s way more than two humans can eat BUT like a lot of other things (spaghetti for instance!) – it’s even better the second time around. Mom just heats the leftovers up and the Royal Parents have this casserole AGAIN!
Hope you have the luck of the Irish on St. Patrick’s Day
