With the holidays closing in on us it’s time to start menu planning. Thanksgiving is all about two things around here…being with family and the food! Over the years my family has definitely fallen in love with different dishes and they have become a staple on the Thanksgiving table. This Cheesy Cauliflower recipe is one of those dishes that our Thanksgiving would not be complete without!
This delicious recipe was shared with me by my former mother-in-law. While working full time as a nurse and raising a family she became quite good at finding recipes that were amazingly delicious but also super quick and easy to make. That’s one of my favorite things about this recipe for Cheesy Cauliflower. It’s a great make-ahead dish when you have a large menu that you’re planning. Cook the cauliflower and make the cheese mixture ahead of time then right before serving spread the cheese mixture over the cauliflower and pop it in the microwave. Simple!
When I started making this for my family my brother-in-law nicknamed it “Brains” because…well…it looks like brains! So that’s what we all call it now! Enjoy! 🙂
