Are you someone who likes to go out for a special dinner on days like Valentine’s Day? Not me. My husband mentioned that we should make reservations for Valentine’s Day. I quickly shot down that idea and told him that I could make a much nicer, less-expensive and more romantic dinner in our own home. Why go out and pay jacked-up prices for dinner just because it’s a special holiday? So we’ll be eating at home. And this recipe is on the menu (with some filet mignon, of course!)
While your broccoli is steaming…
…cook the bacon and crisp it up nicely. You’re going to save some of that bacon grease for the next step!
Garlic and raisins are sauteed in a little of that bacon grease, and a few other ingredients are then added into the pan to finish up making the hot bacon dressing.
The hot dressing is tossed with the steamed broccoli, and crispy bacon bits are sprinkled in upon serving. This side dish is WONDERFUL- especially if you are fan of both broccoli and bacon. I’d be happy eating a big bowl of just this for dinner. My husband is happier eating it with filet mignon
