Cauliflower, Potato & Cheddar Bake {giveaway}

Still scrambling for Thanksgiving sides? Need a fresh new idea? This dish is a perfect side to either lighten up your usual potato dish or add in some extra vegetables. It is super easy to make and will taste great any time of year, not just at Thanksgiving.

I made this using these pretty purple dishes and a great mandoline to slice the potatoes and cauliflower. I’ve been dying for a mandoline so when Big Kitchen approached me about teaming up it was my first choice. And I just love these adorable dishes! I can’t wait to make individual servings of all sorts of things in them. I’ll probably start with macaroni & cheese but that should come as no surprise. And the mandoline is great too! It took a little getting used to, but I have big plans for it as well. Once I got used to it, it was very easy to use. It has a button that you can just press to adjust thickness and it also has blades to julienne and cube. Another great feature is the storage holder for the extra blades. This is a huge safety advantage–this way they aren’t loose in your pantry or wherever you store them. You can even use it as a drying rack to dry the blades after using them.

Cauliflower, Potato & Cheddar Bake {giveaway}

Yield: Makes three to four 12-ounce dishes or one 1 quart baking dish. Can be doubled for a 2 quart baking dish.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3/4 pound of Yukon Gold potatoes (about 3 medium, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 small head of cauliflower (~1 pound), sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, chopped plus more for (optional) garnish
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar
  • scant 1/4 cup of milk or chicken broth

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Spray three 12-ounce baking dishes with non-stick spray. In a large pot, cover potatoes with cold salted water. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, add cauliflower and cook about 8 minutes or until potatoes are just cooked through and cauliflower is tender. Drain in colander and let sit at least five minutes.
  2. Divide the cauliflower/potatoes up between the three baking dishes. Sprinkle with pepper and thyme. Top with cheddar (divide evenly between three dishes). Pour over milk (divide evenly between three dishes) and dot with butter. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is golden brown and bubbling.

Notes

If you use a single larger baking dish, I would recommend doing two layers (potato/cauliflower, thyme/pepper, cheese, then repeat and then finish with milk and butter).

    This was really difficult, but my favorite side is my Mother’s recipe for sausage stuffing. It’s awesome

  208. Maura @ My Healthy 'Ohana — November 19, 2012 at 6:28 pm

    Such a hard question, I love so many sides. I would have to say cranberry sauce though, since fresh cranberries are only available this time of year. Followed closely by any form of stuffing though.

    This recipe looks great, won’t be able to make it for Thanksgiving but I think it would make a great dinner on a cold night.

    My favorite thanksgiving side is a Sweet Potato Soufle from Tyler Florence.. I saw him make it on Food 911 years ago, and family demands it at every holiday. Its a bit of work, but sooo good. Instead of marshmallow on top, Tyler uses an italian meringue. Yum! and I made homemade pecan pralines for the recipe also.. MMMM.
