For me, personally, I could easily make a hot bowl of this pan all my dinner, but you can serve it with your favorite meat and a garden salad.
If you wanted to beef up the pan (uh … chicken-it-up?), You could shred roast chicken and add it to the dish before cooking.
When I was a kid, my mom always steamed a pan of cauliflower and then sprinkled a bunch of cheddar over it. She and I ate a huge plate of this stuff and that's what made me love cauliflower when I was younger.
This loaded cauliflower casserole recipe reminds me of the cauliflower cheese plates that my mom would whip, but much better.
The crispy bacon in this cauliflower pan really sends it over. It adds a nice crunch that goes well with cauliflower and creamy steamed cheese.
This loaded cauliflower pan recipe is definitely worth a try. Make sure to add it to your weekly meal plan this week and let me know how you like it!
