Three Cheese Baked Cauliflower

For those of you missing macaroni and cheese, welcome to cheateroni and cheese!  You’ll love the lusciously creamy and cheesy taste of this dish.

The original recipe also called for 5 strips of cooked chopped bacon to be added on top before baking but unless you have the special nitrate free bacon you’d best skip that part. 

I bet this would also be terrific if you substituted broccoli for the cauliflower!  AND you wouldn't be caught with nothing ready to go for dinner because you forgot to defrost something (don't be me).

Try to use a real hair on your chest milk or cream, almond milk would make this sweet and that would be a weird combo, sweet and cheesy....

Three Cheese Baked Cauliflower

1 big head cauliflower (washed and cut into florets)

1 cup whole milk or half & half or cream

1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon ground black pepper

1 tablespoon salt

Preheat oven to 350F .

Boil water in large pot over high heat.  When water is at a rolling boil, add in florets and cook for a quick 2-3 minutes, then drain and run under cold water for a minute, set aside.

Spread out the drained cauliflower in a 9x13 inch baking dish.  Combine ground black pepper, salt and olive oil together and mix into the florets.  Then stir in the milk.  Spread all the cheeses on top. 

Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
