Bacon and broccoli Lasagne


Yes thats right.

Bacon and broccoli.  In fact I am going to completely blow your mind and tell you there is cauliflower in it as well AND its tastes GREAT.  Its cheesy and garlicky an the bacon just adds that lovely salty bacon flavour when you bite into it.

If you have kids that won’t eat green food, then just add more cauliflower and take out the broccoli.  This is SO easy, this tray pictured has just been put like this (covered) in our freezer.  I will take it out one morning next week and it will go in the oven as soon as I get home from work.  Its that easy.


1 can of cream of chicken soup

(just an idea, another alternative to cream of chicken soup is 400g of cream cheese – it is a bit heavier though, but you do that that really big cheese hit – I would also add some chicken stock so its not too thick and spreads easily when layering).

2 tablespoons of minced garlic (all of my dishes are garlic heavy, just a warning)

2 teaspoons of mustard

2 cups of tasty cheese

12 slices of short cut bacon

1 small broccoli head

1/2 cauliflower

1 brown onion (finely diced already browned)

1 packet of lasagne sheets

A good dash of salt and pepper

Basil to garnish.



Boil the broccoli and cauliflower in one pot until soft.  Into a blender (or you can just use a blending stick, or your thermie) blend the browned onion, garlic, salt, pepper, mustard, broccoli, cauliflower, cream of chicken soup until the consistence is that of thick soup.

In your baking dish, ladle the sauce.  Then add your lasagne sheets, then your sauce again, then your lay your short cut bacon (4 pieces per layer) then a sprinkling of tasty grated cheese.  Keep layering until its all gone.

If you want to eat this straight away, pop it into the oven for 30 minutes on 180.

Or, just do what I did – cover and freeze for that night you don’t want to cook!
