Cauliflower Au Gratin

November 18, 2021Teresa

Cauliflower Au Gratin is a wonderful side dish for the holidays. This incredibly easy 4-ingredient recipe is perfect for holiday meals especially if you have to whip something up quickly or at the last moment. This one includes Ritz crackers for a topping, and cheddar cheese as part of the easy, creamy, cheesy part that holds the casserole together.

I didn’t grow up eating cauliflower. My mom never made it (probably because my Dad was such a picky eater). Also, it was the mid-sixties before you could get frozen vegetables in our home town. I didn’t eat much cauliflower until after I’d been out on my own and married. I think the first time I actually ate it was when my mother-in-law served it for a meal around 1980. I loved it and starting using it in recipes after that.

Cauliflower Au Gratin is one of the easiest ways to use cauliflower in a side dish. If you need to make this in a slow cooker because you have too many things in the oven, I believe it can be easily converted. I would mix the first three ingredients and slow cook until the cauliflower is tender. Then sprinkle the Ritz cracker crumbs over top and cook about 30 minutes longer.

Whether you make Cauliflower Au Gratin for Thanksgiving, Christmas or weekly dinner menus, everyone’s sure to love it!
