How To Make roasted bacon cheddar cauliflower

  • Bacon frying in a skillet.
    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Fry the bacon, reserving the grease.
  • Thyme, Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, pepper, oil, leftover bacon grease, and cauliflower in a bowl.
    In a medium bowl, combine the thyme, Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, pepper, oil, and leftover bacon grease. Add the raw cauliflower and mix well.
  • Cauliflower on a foil-lined baking sheet.
    Once coated, place the mixture on a foil-covered large rimmed baking sheet.
  • Cauliflower roasting in the oven.
    Sprinkle with the seasoned salt and bake 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Bacon and shredded cheddar cheese in a bowl.
    Crumble the cooked bacon and add to a bowl. Mix in the cheddar cheese.
  • Melting the cheese over the cauliflower.
    Top the roasted cauliflower with the cheese mix and let stand 10 minutes before serving to allow the cheese to melt a bit. If the cheese is not melting properly, you can also place the dish back in the oven to help it.
