So one of the mama’s posted a really neat video about a roasted cauliflower … sadly it’s in Portuguese and I never learned that language in school. But born from watching the video and using what I had on hand… we now have … Cheddar Jack Cauliflower Bomb…
This is one satisfying side dish with cheddar jack cheese as well as mozzarella and cream cheese… not to mention peppers, onions and bacon!!
It is a HUGE YUM BOMB!!
This one is pretty basic, because I was trying out cheeses and seeing how to tuck everything inside before baking it… I’m sure you are going to see all kinds of different varieties of this dish in the near future as everyone tries their own variations.
Here is the video that inspired this dish…
If you can translate this video all of us in the THM community would be eternally grateful 🙂
I paired this up with some roasted chicken for dinner so it’s a heavy S dinner in our house tonight …
I honestly need to go get more supplies to make this again as it got two thumbs up from my husband.
** Update to include all of the cook times **
I boiled the head of cauliflower for 15-20 minutes before stuffing it. It should be tender but slightly firm.
( your times may vary from mine)
Stuffing and tucking the cheese was a little difficult until I figured out that the veggies help to separate the florets enough to easily tuck the cheese into the cauliflower.
It took about 1/2 pound of cheddar and 1/2 pound of jack cheese along with a full block of cream cheese and 2 wedges of laughing cow, I used white cheddar and 1/4 cup Parmesan .
for the veggies I used 2-3 bell peppers cut into strips and 1 medium onion cut into 8 wedges.
I had about 3-4 TBS of bacon bits left so I sprinkled those on top.
And baked it for about 25 minutes in a 350^ oven.
the measurements I used filled this head of cauliflower but will vary depending on how big yours is.
I bet we could make this into a smaller version with a 1/2 or 1/4 head of cauliflower if needed.
