Baked Cauliflower with Three Cheese and Bacon

Recently I bought a big head cauliflower from our local market.Mostly the big head cauliflower sell in our farmer market grown locally at East End Suffolk County,Long Island.Don't think East End or Hampton 's residence are the only rich and famous people like J.LO,Hilton's,Trump and etc!! There are still some part of the island land preserved for farmers that been here for many many years ago. Well,I try to think what should I do with this cauliflowers beside stir-fry Chinese style.Since hubby and daughter loves cheese, so I bake this simple cauliflowers with cheeses and bacon. It's turn up really cheesy and creamy like MC and Cheese!!



Ingredients:


1 big head cauliflower ( wash and cut -floret)


5 strips cooked bacon ( chopped)


1 cup whole milk


1/2 cup Cheddar cheese ( shredder)


1/2 cup mozzarella cheese (shredder)


1/2 cup Parmesan cheese ( grated)


1 tbsp ground black pepper


1 tbsp salt


2 tbsp olive oil








Method:


1: Wash and cut cauliflower pieces into bite-size florets .Preheat oven at 350F .Prepare water in large pot over high heat.When water rolling boil,add in florets for a quick 2-3 minutes cook,then drain and run under cold water for a minutes,set aside.


2:Prepare a large deep baking dish,spread all the drain 1/2 cooked florets.Combine ground black pepper,salt and olive oil together and mix into the florets.Then add in milk ,spread all the shredded cheese and chopped bacon on top.Bake for 30 minutes or until it's turn golden brown.


3:Serve warm as side dish.




Note:


If you like more creamy ,add in more cheese!

Your recipes need a proofreader. The cauliflower with 3 cheeses is full of mistakes.

When I read 'three cheese' my eyes were like 'blink blink' and when I saw pictures, so drool. I only made baked broccoli with sliced cheese (lazy version of mine) before. Thanks for inspiration, I should try it soon
