This recipe was created when I had ingredients leftover from the Mini Pull Apart Bread recipe. I already had the ingredients chopped, meats cooked and I had cauliflower in my refrigerator. It dawned on me that this recipe would actually be great for your party for those who are gluten free and couldn’t enjoy the pull apart breads.
- 2 heads cauliflower, broken into florets
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1 stick of butter, cubed
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese ( or other cheese)
- Any toppings desired
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place cauliflower in a large pot and add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 12-15 minutes or until very tender. Drain water and transfer back to the pot. Using a potato masher, mash cauliflower with milk, parmesan cheese, butter and seasonings. Taste and adjust seasoning, as needed. Transfer to a greased baking dish. Top with cooked meats, cheese, vegetables or herbs.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and top is golden brown.
