This would be great for the holidays. Something different. It's very good. I would have taken a picture for you today.,...but we ate it all! Sorry.
1 16 oz frozen cauliflower
1 8 oz frozen green beans
8 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp onion powder
3 TBS bacon pieces (make sure no sugar added-or cook up your own)
salt and pepper to taste
Steam the cauliflower and green beans in the microwave using a little bit of water. Try the new steaming bags on the shelves in store now---THEY ARE GREAT!
Put in a greased 2 quart baking dish. Mix in cheese, onion powder, salt and pepper and bacon.
Pour heavy cream on top of mixture. Place in oven 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
*in a time pinch ....you can microwave this covered for 8-10 minutes...but the heavy cream doesn't get as thick and mixed in with the cheese. But it's still yummy!
This is a great side to go with the most basic pork chop, steak or chicken recipe. Buy a already roasted chicken from your local market and add this in a pinch. Wa la....dinner in now time. Throw in some sugar free jello for a little sweetness afterwards! ENJOY.....
