This is another delicious and useful Amish Broccoli Salad. Wonderful salad to take along on summer picnics or to barbecues.  Who doesn't like bacon and eggs? This makes a good side, but also a great, substantial snack to satiate hunger between meals or simply as a light meal on its own.  I could even snack on this for breakfast, it's so good!

1 lb chopped broccoli (0.45 kg)
  (chopped into small pieces)
8 hard-boiled eggs, coarsely chopped
8 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese, (500 mL)
1 cup mayonnaise (250 mL)
1 cup sour cream (250 mL)
Liquid sweetener to equal 2 tbsp sugar (30 mL)
  (optional – adds no extra carbs)
1/tsp salt, OR to taste (2 mL)

In large salad bowl or trifle bowl, combine broccoli, hard-boiled eggs, bacon, and 11/cups (375 mL) Cheddar cheese.  In medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, liquid sweetener (if using) and salt.  Stir the creamy mixture into the broccoli salad.  Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.  Cover the salad bowl with plastic wrap and chill before serving.

Helpful Hint:  If desired par-boil the broccoli for 2 to 3 minutes.  This will ensure that the broccoli is not quite so crunchy, if that is your preference.
