To make this Cheesy Bacon Broccoli Casserole, start by preheating oven to 425 degrees and buttering a 9x9 casserole dish and setting aside.
To cook your bacon, spray a baking sheet with non stick spray and lay your bacon out flat on the pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crispy before removing the bacon to a paper towel lined plate while you prepare the remainder of your recipe.
Add your broccoli florets to a large strainer over a pot filled with 1-2 inches of water, bring to a boil and then cover, steaming broccoli for 2-3 minutes. When done, remove from heat and set aside.
In a large skillet or pot, combine garlic and herb cream cheese and heavy cream over medium high heat. Add spices and parmesan cheese then stir to combine. Toss in the broccoli florets and most of the crispy bacon pieces, most of the green onions and add a squeeze of lemon.
Transfer the broccoli to the buttered casserole dish and then cover with the cheddar cheese and remaining bacon and green onions. Bake covered for 25 minutes and then uncovered for another 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
