Do You Use Fresh Or Frozen Vegetables for This Bacon Broccoli Bake 

I used fresh broccoli and cauliflower that I steamed until fork tender for this bacon broccoli casserole. But, if you have frozen on hand you can use that instead. Just allow it to thaw and then prep and cook. It won't need to be steamed since it is pre-cooked already. 

We prefer fresh vegetables but feel free to use what you have on hand for this keto casserole. I mean you can't go wrong with broccoli florets, cauliflower, and of course cheese and bacon. 

Can You Add Meat to The Broccoli Bake 

Sure. If you wanted to add meat you are welcome to. I would add in cooked shredded or chopped chicken, ground beef, or even cut turkey or shredded. It will pair nicely with this casserole dish.

Can You Freeze This Creamy Broccoli Casserole

Unfortunately, this casserole won't thaw the greatest. Because of the heavy cream, you might find that after you go to thaw the frozen casserole the heavy cream will offer a curdled texture. 

Is This Cauliflower Broccoli Casserole Gluten Free 

Yes. All ingredients used are gluten-free. There is no flour or anything used in this casserole. A low carb, ketogenic diet recipe, that taste like a guilty pleasure.
