Bacon Wrapped Cheddar Stuffed Cauliflower


Deliciously crispy on the outside, while smooth, creamy and cheesy on the inside. This is how you can describe this outrageously mouth-watering comfort dish. Before baking it, cover the Cheddar stuffed cauliflower with a hot sauce just to make it more lively.

Step 1

Add the cauliflower to a water-filled deep pot over high heat and bring it to a boil. Boil for 10 minutes.

Place the cooked cauliflower on the work surface and bore deep holes in it using a cylindrical cutter. We made 13 of them. Insert the Cheddar sticks into the holes.

Line a medium bowl with the bacon slices. Do that so that they radiate from the bottom center of the bowl upwards to its rim. Place the stuffed cauliflower in the bacon-lined bowl.

For the sauce: Add the heavy cream, garlic powder, and paprika powder to a smaller bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix.

Cover the cauliflower with this sauce using a kitchen brush. Wrap it with the bacon slices.

Transfer the wrapped cauliflower on a parchment paper-lined baking tray and bake for 50 minutes at 320⁰F/160⁰C.

Remove from oven and add the mozzarella on top. Bake for 10 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C. Serve garnished with fresh dill.
