Cauliflower Au Gratin
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.
