When the holidays are here, it’s always nice to take what seems like a boring vegetable side dish and dress it up. Bacon makes everything better it seems, and this recipe is no exception. The fat from the bacon roasts up the garlic and cauliflower, imparting its smoky flavor throughout the whole dish. The only problem you’ll have is that you may need to double the quantities, because it will go very fast!
1 head cauliflower, cored and cut into florets
3 pieces of bacon, diced
6 cloves of garlic, peeled and cut in half
2 tsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
Pre-heat oven to 375F.
In a bowl, toss together the cauliflower florets, bacon, garlic, and olive oil. Spread out onto a baking sheet in a single layer and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Roast for about 20-22 minutes, stirring every now and then, until all the bacon is cooked through. Watch carefully towards the end because it can go from almost cooked to burned in only minutes.
