Ok, we have the 3 C’s here. Let’s talk about them.
Cheesy – who doesn’t love cheese? Mozzarella, Cheddar and Parmesan are my favorites for recipes. And this recipe has 2 of them in!
Cauliflower – beautiful cauliflower, fresh from the garden, I love you. You can’t go wrong with cauliflower, you just can’t!
Casserole – I love casseroles. You put them inside the oven and magic happens. That’s the only way I can describe it.
We love this casserole. We had it so many times during cauliflower season I can’t even count. For the majority of times we had it as our main dish because it’s pretty filling, especially if you add a piece of garlic bread on the side. You can dip your bread into the cheesy sauce on your plate too, I totally would do that! You can definitely use the casserole a side dish as well, it would be great paired with a meat. This would also rule at potlucks. This would also cause you to be the champion at all holiday meals. Your relative you always compete with will get defeated, your cauliflower will knock them out (not literally, unless you want…).

I love cauliflower, do you? How do you like to eat it best?
This has nothing to do with the recipe but I looked up and saw amazing light on the wall so I ran over and took a picture.
Mix your ingredients in a bowl. Cheddar cheese, yum!
Put on top of your cauliflower and toss to coat..
Then into the oven it goes!
And Golly Molly, this darling comes out!
The best thing about this casserole is the cauliflower still has a crunch to it, it tastes incredibly fresh.
Grab a fork and take a bite, enjoy!
