Chef’s Notes: Putting some of my favorite things together to make a totally new dish is so exciting. Sometimes it does not work. Other times, like here, the finished product is greater than the sum of its parts.
This is a great side dish for a bland protein as it adds a great “pop” to the plate.
1 head of cauliflower ( about 3-3 ½ cups)
1 medium onion, sliced thinly
2 Tbsp. butter
2 cloves garlic, grated or minced very finely
3 Tbsp. sour cream
2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
6 slices of crisp bacon, crumbled
½ cup whole milk
HOW TO PREPARE THE RECIPE:
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven
Cut cauliflower into 1 inch florets
Sautee the onion in the butter until lightly golden brown. Turn off the heat and add the garlic. Allow to cool slightly. Add the bacon, blue cheese (I like to reserve a little of both to sprinkle on top just before serving), pepper, and sour cream. Combine with the cauliflower and pour into an oven proof dish. Add the milk. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for 15 more minutes until lightly brown. NOTE: if you like your vegetables softer cook for another 5-10 minutes.
