What a great way to jazz up roasted cauliflower! The combination of herbs and cheese plus utilizing bacon grease when baking makes this cauliflower very flavorful. Crumbled bacon and more cheese take this low carb side dish over the top. We bet everyone will eat their veggies when they try this recipe! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Roasted Bacon Cheddar Cauliflower

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Fry bacon. Save bacon grease.
  2. Combine in a medium bowl thyme, Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, pepper, oil, and leftover bacon grease. Add raw cauliflower and mix well.
  3. Once coated, place the mixture on a foil-covered large rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and bake 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix cooked bacon (broken into bits) and cheddar cheese.
