I’m finally home for the weekend, so I wanted to pick out a few good recipes. The first one I attempted was Twice Baked Cauliflower (basically veggies gone wild.) I’ve had great luck cooking with cauliflower swaps in the past so I had pretty high hopes for this one. This recipe feels indulgent, but it’s not something I’d find myself regretting eating.
To start I cut up the cauliflower into small pieces and got it soaking in a pot of boiling water, just to soften it up enough that I could “mash” it.
I bought pre-cooked bacon, but wanted to crisp it up a little more. Don’t do what I did and overcook the bacon. Because they’re precooked they can go from not-done-yet to black-and-burnt in just a few seconds.
I then spread that mixture into my casserole dish, topped with cheese and popped into the oven.
This turned out amazing! The flavor was fantastic. The one thing I might change if I make again is to mash the cauliflower better. I was happy with the outcome, but the consistency of the dish was more like a casserole than a loaded baked potato, so that might be an interesting thing to try.
Taste: 4/4 – The sour cream gave it just the perfect amount of flavor and complimented all the other savory flavors.
Leftovers: 4/4 – Reheated like a mother flippin’ champ.
