If you have picky eaters in your house, specifically when it comes to vegetables, I have a solution for you…

Top it with CHEESE!

I know, that’s sort of a no-brainer, right? Cheese makes everything better and I’m sticking to it!

I’m not picky when it comes to veggies. I like most everything, especially if it’s seasoned or roasted until crisp. Now, the hubster, that’s a different story. While he does like vegetables, he is pretty picky. Broccoli and cauliflower are a no-go for him, which means that we don’t eat it all that often in my house. Or, if I get the urge to make it, I end up eating it all myself. Not a bad thing though, right?

But, add some cheese, and even the hubster likes his fair share of veggies. Cheese just seems to have magical powers, at least in my mind. The more cheese, the better! Cheddar, mozzarella, brie, feta, gouda, gruyere, havarti…I could go on and on.

So, I’m sure you can probably guess where I’m going with this.

If you’ve never had cauliflower with cheese before, then you’re totally missing out. And if you have, isn’t it the best?

This Baked Cheesy Cauliflower is my new favorite way to eat this veggie. Not only is it smothered with mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, but it’s also tossed with garlic and Italian seasonings. My two favorites right there, friends.

And just incase you’re wondering, yes, the hubster loved this cauliflower. He even had a second (and maybe third) helping. It’s just that good. Aka: cheese is magical.

Some tips to remember:

  • It’s important to make sure the cauliflower florets are coated in olive oil to help it achieve that tender, yet crisp texture.
  • The more cheese, the better! This recipe is extremely versatile, so feel free to use your preference of cheese.

So if you’re looking to give that plain cauliflower a makeover, this cheesy cauliflower is sure to be a winner!
