Bacon Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Casserole

Recipe by  

"This twist on cauliflower casserole combines the traditional green bean casserole-style dish with a tastier, spicier flavor. Fresh cauliflower, bacon, and Italian ingredients make this casserole just delicious. This casserole really celebrates the cauliflower therefore should not be soupy and doesn't overdo the flavorings and cheese."

  • Cook's Note:
  • Don't worry about the top burning it will look dark but won't burn if your oven temperature is correct. If you really think the top is getting too done, cover it loosely with aluminum foil but remove the foil the last 15 minutes so the top can get crispy.
