After all the calories laden food we had over the last few days, it is good to go for something lighter :p ahem...I was delighted that FFWD recipe for this Friday is Cauliflower-Bacon Gratin...this is considered light compared to those red meat we had the last few days LOL! Cauliflower and bacon plus those lips-smacking cheese and heavy cream.....baked till one's nostril tingles with the aroma of the bacon and spices wafting out of the oven....awwww I have to walk extra miles to burn off the calories that I had been happily tucking in during the festive season .
This gratin can be served as a side dish with a roast or as suggested by Dorie can be served as a brunch, lunch or supper with a salad...the last would be favored by me but I was too lazy to prepare a salad so I took this as brunch without salad. It is like a quiche filling with extra flour and yet taste like a savory pudding with its rich, soft and creamy texture. A classic no doubt !
