110 g bacon
450 g cauliflower
150 ml crème fraîche or sour cream
225 g (475 ml) cheddar cheese, shredded
2 tbsp fresh chives, finely chopped
1 tsp garlic powder (optional)
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 175°C.
Chop the bacon into small pieces. Fry until crispy in a hot frying pan. Reserve the fat for serving.
Break the cauliflower into florets. Boil until soft in lightly salted water. Drain completely.
Chop the cauliflower roughly. Add sour cream and garlic powder, if you’re using any. Combine well with 3/4 of the cheese and most of the finely chopped chives. Salt and pepper.
Place in a baking dish and top with the rest of the cheese. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
Serve with the bacon, the rest of the chives, and the bacon fat that adds a nice extra flavour and taste.
