This "Cracked Out" Hot Broccoli Dip was gone in a flash! Everyone asked for the recipe. We served the dip with some Ritz crackers, Fritos, and tortilla chips. Next time I will double it! The dip can be made ahead of time and refrigerated overnight before baking.
The dip uses fresh broccoli. I used only the florets and chopped it pretty fine. I didn't want there to be big hunks of broccoli since this was a dip. I wanted to make sure that there was broccoli, cheddar and bacon in every bite. Cleanup was a breeze. I tossed all the broccoli stalks into the sink and let my awesome new InSinkErator Evolution Excel garbage disposal do all the work. I put the bowl in the dish washer and the kitchen was cleaned up in a minute. LOVE!
