Broccoli...you either love it, or you hate it. I absolutely hated broccoli until I met Cade. I'll tell you more about that story in a minute, but I guarantee that any hater who tries this creamy cheesy broccoli bake with bacon will be a hater no longer! It's indulgent, luscious, and topped with a crispy panko crust and bacon.
