Cauliflower Au Gratin Recipe

cauliflower au gratin recipe

cauliflower au gratin recipeWe’ve been trying to minimize the amount of starches we have in our meals, so a lot of our potato and rice dishes have been replaced with cauliflower. That however, doesn’t mean we don’t crave some of those staples we’ve been use to over the years, so we ended up coming with a delicious recipe for cauliflower au gratin. The recipe is based on my potato au gratin recipe – and there’s a good chance, it’s not really any healthier for you. However, it is a great alternative to the potato version, and pretty easy to make!

We were sent some great bakeware from Homer Laughlin to test our and make a couple recipes. Check back later this afternoon to win some Fiesta ware of your own!
