Baked Cauliflower Recipe

I created this recipe myself. The cheddar cheese and bread crumb topping makes it a pretty casserole for a holiday dinner. You can easily double the amounts if you’re having a larger group.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:4-6 servings


  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen cauliflower, thawed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. In a large skillet, saute onion in 2 tablespoons butter and oil until onion is tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the cauliflower, salt, pepper and nutmeg; saute for 2 minutes.

"I used fresh cauliflower and microwaved it in a bit of water for a few minutes. This recipe was just okay for us. Will not make again as I have another recipe we prefer."
