Author Notes

Similar in execution as my Confetti Cauliflower, this is also a great appetizer, but more for the meateaters. It looks more pristine and not quite the center of attention...but oh! it has a lot of horseradish bite and a big dash of bacon flavors! —dymnyno

What You'll Need
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 3 slices of bacon, cooked very crisp
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish(like Fred's)
  • 1 tablespon finely chopped parsley
  1. Remove the leaves from the bottom of the cauliflower and set aside to use after the head is cooked.
  2. In a large pot , steam the cauliflower until tender (about 10 to 15 min) and cool
  3. Mix the sour cream with the horseradish sauce .
  4. "Frost" the cauliflower with the sour cream, covering the whole head.
  5. Place the head back into the bowl of leaves.
  6. Sprinkle the cauliflower with the finely chopped parsley and the crumbled bacon bits.
  7. Serve with a sliced baquette

Wow. This has, sight unseen, just become my new favorite way to prepare cauliflower. All five ingredients are ones I cannot imagine living (or cooking) without. I can't wait to try this! Yummmm. ;o)

Thanks , Tom. I was inspired by a potato chip dip (sour cream, bacon and horseradish) that I haven't seen in years, but I was addicted to once.

My husband AKA "bacon boy" is drooling...And cauliflower is his favorite vegetable. Thanks for another "keeper".
