cauliflower au gratin


                         Cauliflower Au Gratin

My kids are my biggest challenge to making and preparing food that they will eat and we all know veggies are most kids pet peeve. So, I had to come up with something that they will love to eat and also make it look inviting. After a few tries I came up with what I like to call my " Gourmet Cauliflower Au Gratin" dish. After serving it to my family, I passed the test with the kids, they even asked for seconds, of course decorations included again. :)

butter a deep pan add your cauliflower, add salt & pepper taste.

Thirdly, sprinkle your gouda cheese on top, add as much as you like. I always add plenty, we're all cheese lovers. :)

Finally, add the creamed milk ( heavy whipping cream)  or heavy cream and bake for about 20 minutes at 300 F and serve.

If you would like take your yellow bell pepper cut in half, cut the stem so you can make a flat surface, so it can stand up. Fill one half with carrots, sprinkle carrot with a dash of vinegar and the other half with olives ot whatever else you can think of. Enjoy!
