Cheesy cauliflower potatoes make a healthy version of a traditional side dish that everyone will love.
I like vegetables and try to eat as many as I can, whether in a giant salad, roasted as a side, or blended into soups.
That being said, I find myself going through periods where I don’t eat many. Usually, this is due to a change in routine like a vacation or something. A close relative was in the hospital in a different state recently and the entire week we visited, I think I subsisted on coffee and doughnuts. I know these things are temporary, so I don’t worry about them too much, but for that reason, I always try to incorporate veggies even when you might not find them otherwise.
Like these cheesy cauliflower potatoes. Yes, I know that potatoes are technically a vegetable, but we don’t really count that these days do we? I’m unsure. Either way, I know I don’t need more potatoes and cheese in my life (okay, I definitely do!) But some cauliflower and onions add a bit of bulk and reduce the carbs, without really sacrificing much. It’s a small victory, sure, but a win nonetheless.
Unlike many potato au gratin-type recipes, for this one, I just combined the veggies in a baking dish and the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Top the veggies with the cheese/milk/eggs, and bake. No tedious layering necessary. For the cheese, I used sharp cheddar and Parmesan, but anything you like will do. The top gets browned and bubbly, while the veggies are tender and delicious. This is perfect for bringing to a holiday party or backyard barbecue but can also be a dinner side on a weeknight. Or in my case, a dinner all on its own. Super yum.
