Roasted Cauliflower & Bacon

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

Author: Stephani @ Bacon & Whipped Cream

Ingredients

  • 1 Head Cauliflower small-med
  • 3 Bacon Strips
  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Enjoy!
