total time


2 bags of broccoli florets (24 ounces total)

olive oil


12 slices bacon, cut into small pieces

1-2 shallots, thinly sliced

4 ounces crumbled feta

3-4 thick slices sourdough, cut into cubes

zest of 2 lemons

lemon juice to taste

1 clove garlic, grated

salt, pepper, olive oil to finish


Roast broccoli, bacon, and shallot

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place broccoli on a large sheet pan, on one side. Place bacon and shallots on the other side. (If you’re running out of room you can separate this onto two sheet pans.) Drizzle broccoli with a little olive oil, and sprinkle with salt. Roast everything for 20-30 minutes, until things are nice and browned. Transfer broccoli, bacon, and shallots to a bowl.

Make sourdough croutons

Turn the oven temp down to 375 degrees. Drain off excess bacon fat if needed, and then add sourdough to the bacon pan and toss to coat in the bacon fat. Add more olive oil or butter as needed to get the croutons evenly coated. Bake for 5-7 minutes until crispy and lightly browned.

Toss and serve

Toss broccoli, bacon, and shallot with feta (add it while everything is hot so it melts a little bit! so yum), lemon zest and lemon juice, and sourdough croutons. Finish with a clove of freshly grated garlic, if you can handle the bite, which I most definitely can! Also: salt, pepper, and olive oil to taste. You can eat this hot or cold or room temp, and it will be so delicious all of the above ways.
