Twice Baked Cauliflower

Twice Baked Cauliflower

Twice baked cauliflower is similar to a twice baked potato.  I don’t even recall how I stumbled upon this recipe. We may have been trying to eat less potatoes so I did a search for a cauliflower version of mashed potatoes and came across a “twice baked cauliflower” recipe online.

I made the recipe and it was pretty good, but like most recipes you will find on this site, I made it the “right way” the first time and then said “this could really use…” as I was eating it.

I’m pretty sure this was in the summer and I had been getting twice baked potatoes from the local grocery store and was really liking their bleu cheese potatoes so I decided I wanted to make a bleu cheese twice baked cauliflower.

The end result of this was that it was fantastic and it has become one of the favorite foods around my house. We make this WAY more than mashed potatoes anymore. I think we only have mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving and those couple times throughout the year where you just want some mashed potatoes.

The absolute best way to make this is in a cast iron pan on the grill.  It is great in the oven, but nothing beats that grilled flavor to a dish like this.

Pair this with a nice medium rare steak and you have a delicious meal.
