Potato, Cauliflower & Cheddar Bake

Tonight I wanted to share with you something I made over the holidays & really enjoyed.

A Potato, Cauliflower & Cheddar Bake!

I am a big believer that cauliflowers can make a big improvement to any meal. I don’t think it gets as much credit as it should in the cooking world, but I am here to give it some support!

Some of my best meals have been made (and made better!) with cauliflower -> Check out some of my favorites:

Creamy Cauliflower Macaroni (immediately if not sooner! YUM!)

Broccoli, Cauliflower Cheddar Soup (another AMAZING yum!)

Butternut Rissotto 

Roasted Vegetables Enchiladas 

Cheesy Squash Casserole

Anywho, back to THIS cauliflower creation.

I started out with an entire head of cauliflower, sliced & diced & set aside.

Next up I sliced about 4-5 small potatoes.

Add the sliced potatoes to a large pot of boiling water.

Bring the sliced potatoes back to a boil & add in the cauliflower.

Cook about 10 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through.

Drain the potatoes & cauliflower – Now its time to prep the dish for the oven!

Place half the potatoes & cauliflower in a buttered baking dish. Sprinkle with thyme, pepper & cheddar cheese. Repeat with the rest of the potatoes & cauliflower & spices.

Put in the oven at 450* for about 15-20 minutes until the cheese is golden.

I seriously can’t get enough of the golden brown cheese on top! Love that!

The great thing about this dish, like so many others, is the possibilities are endless to make it your own. You can add any additional veggies or spices to give it a totally different taste.

I made this as a side dish for Thanksgiving Round 2 and it was a hit.

    This week we made a parsnip/cauliflower/chive mash as a side with salmon for dinner. It was great!
