This cheesy cauliflower recipe makes a one dish, skillet side dish. Made of cauliflower, bacon, onions and more, it is a favorite of cauliflower recipes.
Have you ever noticed that there are some vegetables that just take on the flavors of whatever you prepare them with more than others? Cauliflower recipes tend to do that and it may be one of the great vegetables that I discovered when Little Buddy was just a wee one. Of course he loved sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, and green beans, but cauliflower was a favorite when he started eating table food. You see, although I went a bit light on the seasonings and spices then, he still loved a plate full of steamed cauliflower with a bit of cheese on it. Over the years, that simple plate cauliflower and cheese evolved to include additional ingredients and flavors.
Thankfully, this cheesy cauliflower skillet recipe couldn’t get any easier. It begins by cooking a bit of bacon in a medium skillet and then sauteing onions and garlic, adding in the cauliflower and a few other ingredients, covering it for a while to let it steam. Sprinkle on the cheese and then it’s ready to be devoured! And believe me, it is!
