You all might know that I love bacon and I love putting it in things I eat (or directly in my mouth). This recipe is just barely a recipe, but tasted so yummy I had to share.
I love roasted vegetables. It’s one of the best ways to eat them. The natural sugars caramelize a bit and bring out a flavor that you just can’t get by steaming them. While I always ate it, I never loved steamed cauliflower. This cauliflower, however, I can eat tons of! Yum!
Roasted Cauliflower with Bacon
- 1 Head Cauliflower small-med
- 3 Bacon Strips
- Salt & Pepper
- Preheat the oven to 400°
- Cook the bacon in a skillet until crisp. While the bacon cooks, chop the cauliflower into small florets and place in a large bowl. Once the bacon is done, drain, and pour the fat into a container to cool slightly (I had about 1.5 T). Once it has cooled a little, pour the fat over the cauliflower and stir to coat.
- Spread the cauliflower on a baking sheet, and bake in the oven for 20-25 min or until tender. Meanwhile, crumble the bacon strips into small pieces. Transfer the cooked cauliflower to a serving bowl, and stir in the bacon pieces. Add salt & pepper to taste.
