Fried Cauliflower with Bacon

Wow! Fried Cauliflower with Bacon is amazing. No kidding. This delicious recipe is modeled after my Fried Green Beans recipe and it is exceptionally good. Plus it uses only 4 ingredients, unless you decide to add salt and pepper. So it’s easy, easy, easy! I used a thick-sliced bacon, onion, cauliflower and Tony’s Creole Seasoning. Truly, this is a magnificent side dish, especially if you enjoy cauliflower.

Our church had its annual church-wide picnic on May 1st. The church provided BBQ turkey, brisket and sausage along with rolls, pickles, onions and sauce. Everyone else was asked to bring sides and desserts. Many of you may know how hot it is here in Texas in the summer. We’re on track to have one of our hottest summers ever with lots of 100+ degree days. So our church asked everyone to bring hot side dishes or salads without mayonnaise (to prevent spoilage).

I decided to bring Fried Green Beans and this Fried Cauliflower with Bacon. Both recipes were gobbled up in no time. John and I served meat during the entire two hours it took to get everyone through the food lines. Granted, there wasn’t much food left that day. There was still meat and rolls and some store-bought cookies, but not much else. I knew it wouldn’t really matter how hot it was outside, the two side dishes I brought would be fine.

One of the things that makes this recipe amazing is the Creole seasoning. You can use as much as you desire, but for this amount a half teaspoon (3/8) is about all I usually use. Some who really enjoy creole flavors like much, much more. The Creole Seasoning flavors everything wonderfully without taking over the side dish so much that it overwhelms it. Add some salt and pepper if you wish, but remember the bacon is salted and the creole seasoning adds a little heat so you may not want any additional pepper either.

Fried Cauliflower with Bacon is a delightful side dish if you’re trying to use up garden produce. It’s also a tasty way to get your kids to eat their vegetables. On top of that, if you have company coming for dinner and you need a quick and easy side to prepare this one will WOW everyone. If you enjoy cauliflower, you may find this scrumptious side dish is just about perfect. 🙂
