Special veggie dishes to accompany the meat and potatoes we will be devouring over the next 10 days or so
I thought I would share the recipe
I have made this on various occasions ..it's really good
Have a go ..If you freeze it...just defrost before heating up in the oven at 400º for around 30 mins ..checking now and again
8 slices of bacon,(cook in oven at 400º for 20 mins)
1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon ranch seasoning
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
6 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, divided
8 oz sliced mushrooms
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Spray a 10” x 7” baking dish (I used a foil dish) with non-stick cooking spray.
Crumble baked bacon in to small pieces . Set aside.
Steam cauliflower until tender, about 15 to 20 minutes..I did mine in the microwave for around 10 mins
Combine your sour cream, mayonnaise, ranch seasoning, fresh pepper in a large bowl. Add the steamed cauliflower florets, 1/2 of the bacon, 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese and 3 tablespoons chives; mix well. Transfer mixture to the prepared baking dish and top with the second cup of cheese and the other half of the bacon.
Bake for 20 minutes. Garnish casserole with remaining chives.
Happy Christmas to all of you and best wishes for the very best, happiest, healthiest 2020
