Roasted Broccoli

When I’m in a hurry I make it in the air fryer, but I actually prefer broccoli roasted in the oven.


  • Fresh broccoli crowns, cut into bite-size florets
  • Melted bacon grease, avocado oil, or olive oil to lightly coat — I like to use a combination of bacon grease and avocado oil
  • To taste:
    • Garlic powder
    • Salt
    • Pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400℉.
  2. Select a non-stick cookie sheet or cover one with non-stick aluminum foil. I use my largest so that there’s plenty of room to spread out the florets. I also prefer a cookie sheet with a lip so nothing slides off. Metal works best for even roasting!
  3. Place the broccoli florets in a large bowl.
  4. Lightly coat the broccoli with the oil of your choice. Make sure all florets have some oil on them so that your seasonings have something to stick to.
  5. Add seasonings and stir to coat evenly.
  6. Spread the broccoli on the cookie sheet. Try to spread it out so there’s a little room around the florets.
  7. Cook for 15 minutes and check. If it isn’t done to your desired brownness, cook a little longer.
