8 oz bacon
2 Tbsp butter
1 onion, diced
1 pound broccoli, chopped to desired size
1-1/2 cups Belfonte Heavy Whipping Cream
1 tsp cornstarch
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
Salt & Pepper, to taste


In large oven-safe skillet, fry bacon until crispy. Remove from pan and set aside. Drain some of the bacon grease, leaving 1-2 Tbsp in pan. Add onion and butter to the pan and cook until transparent. Add broccoli, season with salt and pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes or until broccoli turns bright green. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds, stirring continuously. Add Belfonte Heavy Whipping Cream and reduce heat to low, letting it simmer for 4-5 minutes. Add a slurry of cornstarch and water to thicken if desired. Crumble bacon and add to the pan, stirring. Sprinkle both cheeses on the pan and stick under broiler for 2-3 minutes or until slightly browned and cheese melted. Carefully remove from the oven and serve.
