Keto Broccoli Cheese Casserole
I made this recipe using my base recipe Low Carb Cheese Sauce. This sauce elevates anything you put it on. So good!
Now, some people don’t really watch what they eat during the holidays. I do. I don’t diet, but I always try to eat sensibly. This makes a lovely side dish for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s a great substitution for Broccoli Rice Casserole if you’re watching carb intake.

Perfectly cooked broccoli
The way you cook your broccoli is a personal thing and this recipe is really forgiving. I like softer cooked broccoli. Therefore, I like to blanch it before adding to the cream sauce.
What is blanching?
Blanching is a cooking process wherein a food, usually a vegetable or fruit, is scalded in boiling water, removed after a brief, timed interval, and finally plunged into iced water or placed under cold running water to halt the cooking process. Blanching foods helps reduce quality loss over time
Blanch your broccoli to the degree of doneness that you prefer. However, remember that it will cook more in the oven.
