FFwD - Cauliflower-Bacon Gratin



This week's French Fridays with Dorie recipe is Cauiflower-Bacon Gratin.  This is a lovely dish of baked cauliflower florets, bacon, cheese, eggs, cream and milk - what's not to love?

I ate this dish initially on its own for my lunch, then as a side with main meals.

To see what everyone else thought of this dish, visit the LYL section of the FFwD website.

Happy New Year!

This one has hit our table a few times. Sometimes, not even making the plate - just spooned out of the serving dish :-)

Have a great New Year.

Yum yum! Bacon makes everything better. Great post

I had it for lunch and dinner too. I agree that it's hard not to like this combination of ingredients.

I loved this...in fact, I think I ate it almost all myself. My oldest thought it would be better without the cauliflower...huh??? Glad you enjoyed, too!

We loved this one too. Though I found it a bit heavy as a side dish, and thought it was better balanced as the main course served with a lighter side salad. Tasty either way though.

I love that this recipe actually has a vegetable! A meaty version of cauliflower cheese - perfect on the side of any meal!

We loved this one. In fact, it is truly one of our favorites- at least on the savory scale, since nothing can trump creme brulee :) Have a wonderful holiday and we are looking forward to more great posts in 2012 !!

Delicious! It was a hit at our house too. I still have some leftovers for tomorrow. Happy New Year! I look forward to continued cooking with you in 2012.

Christy said...

It was simply delicious! We had it for leftovers also, and it was just as great the second day. Happy New Year and looking forward to cooking with you in 2012!

This was a hit for me, too. As you say, how could it fail to be one?

Happy New Year (I think it already is the New Year where you are, too).

Glad to hear you enjoyed it! I like that it can either be used as an entree or a side. :)

Jora said...

I think everyone agrees on this one. It's hard to go wrong with bacon, cheese and cream!
