This recipe is not a huge culinary feat and one that is easy to work into your week day menu. If you are a fan of cauliflower, and I know not all are, this is the best way to serve it in my opinion. Simple, delicious, and full of flavor. Which we know cauliflower on its own does not have.
Simple Crispy Cauliflower with Bacon
makes four sides
One large head of Cauliflower
Two slices of bacon (more if thinly sliced), finely chopped
One small onion or half a large, cut in large dice
seasoning salt and pepper (like Lawry's)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Cut the stem out of the cauliflower heard and cut in slices as shown.
Break up the pieces into florets on a large sheet pan. Add the bacon and onion. Drizzle with olive oil, enough to thinly coat, and season to taste with the salt and pepper. Toss with clean hands until everything is coated with a bit of oil and seasoning.
Roast in the oven for 30-40 minutes, flipping once half way, until the cauliflower and bacon is crisp.
