Cheesy Roasted Cauliflower

I really didn’t know what to expect when I was making this Cheesy Roasted Cauliflower. I had never tried roasting cauliflower before, so this was something new for me. I’m not a particularly big fan of cauliflower either, but I do love roasted veggies—so I thought it would be worth a try!

When I had my first taste of this, I thought, “Wow, this is good!” I really did. It surpassed my expectations. Who would have thought cauliflower could have tasted so good? 

The bacon bits on top are a nice touch, although this is great without the bacon, too, if you want to keep it meatless. I’m sure this is something everyone in your family will love. It’s definitely worth making!
