Recipe Tips:

  • Line the pan with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  • You can use frozen cauliflower, but don’t thaw it first. You may only need to add a few minutes to the baking time. Watch carefully so they don’t burn.
  • I love the rich, nutty flavor that comes with the cauliflower rating, but you can also use steamed cauliflower.
  • Use freshly grated cheese. The prepackaged ones have a coating that doesn’t easily melt the cheese.
  • Use our bacon in oven recipes to cook your bacon.
