I have an outrageously delicious Cauliflower Casserole recipe for you today! Creamy Cauliflower Casserole. This amazing side dish includes both Parmesan (or Romano) and Cheddar cheeses. Plus, it has Ritz crackers crushed up and added into the recipe (not as a topping). Spectacular, indeed!
I was looking through several of my Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks a few months ago trying to get ideas for side dishes. When I stumbled across this recipe it sounded so enticing I knew I needed to give it a try. It was delectable. I served it the first time for our regular Friday night care group along with Slow Cooked Pepper Steak. We have some folks in our group who will eat anything. We have some that are a little picky. And we had at least two that dont ever eat cauliflower. I begged them to eat just one bite to give me their take on the recipe.
Even those who NEVER eat cauliflower loved this recipe. The Ritz Crackers really pop in this casserole. In fact, both of these guys decided to go back for a real serving! Anyone who enjoys cauliflower anyway will find this side dish perfect for company or holiday menus. It doesnt take long to throw together and it really tastes heavenly.
The second time I served it with Apricot Glazed Ham for our Young at Heart group. That group will eat just about any vegetable and they sure loved this recipe. Its hearty, filling and so utterly satisfying.
This is a fantastic side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Especially if youre looking for something besides the same old corn or green bean recipes. Seriously, this cauliflower dish will knock your socks off! And, you may even find the picky eaters at your table will love Creamy Cauliflower Casserole as well.
