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

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Fry bacon. Save bacon grease.
