I think the flavor is much better if you roast the florets first before assembling your Loaded cauli and baking it.

I make one similar to the above recipe referenced by @devhammer. I probably use more cheddar and I use HWC instead of almond milk.

I like to do it in a crock pot on low all day. I find it tastes best if you bake/slow cook until the top starts to crust over and brown a bit.

U suggest browning first for crock pot? That’s not a bad idea over night on low? Even with cheese? I’m just wondering if cheese will burn over night…maybe I’ll use one of those bags … HWC/Butter and lots of cheese and then the florets :thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking:

Wow! I had some leftover cauliflower, lamb, pork belly and duck from the grill last night. So I just put it in a bowl and reheated it, then added shredded Mozzarella, melted that, stirred it all up and garnished with parm and mimolette cheese. Took about 4 minutes to make and my SO almost dropped her bowl. It was amazing.

I have a low profile rectangle shaped crock pot so the food isn’t real deep. I find that after 6-8 hours on low this dish gets a delicious golden to barely browning crust on top. Just another layer of flavor to the cheesy cauliflower.

I do roast the cauliflower in the oven first if I have the time. If not I just throw it together,
