This dish takes minutes to prepare but looks fancy, it’s perfect to make for your holiday gathering. Cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg and cloves warms this dish up, and extra sharp cheddar cheese brightens up the flavor in this gratin, making it one of our new favorite dishes we’re going to make every year!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
2 slices of bacon
1 tablespoon ghee or butter
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of ground nutmeg
Pinch of ground cloves
2 cups chopped cauliflower
2 ounces of extra-sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 whole scallion, minced
¼ cup parsley, chopped
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and cook bacon on a baking tray lined with parchment paper until crispy, about 10 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool. Once cool, chop into bite-sized pieces.
While the bacon is cooking, heat ghee or butter and heavy whipping cream in a medium-sized sauce pan on medium-low heat.
Whisk in sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
Add chopped cauliflower and stir occasionally until the cauliflower is soft, about 10 minutes.
Pour the cauliflower mixture into a shallow oven-safe serving dish and top with grated cheese.
Transfer the dish to the oven and allow the cheese to melt until it begins to bubble, about 5 minutes.
Garnish with bacon and fresh scallion and parsley.
Store any leftovers in a glass container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
