Sometimes recipes are created and they need to be eaten immediately.

I was on my way out to ski and I was starving. The smell of this gratin baking made me even more hungry. After a quickie photo shoot it was enjoyed.

I added some of my favorite roasted sweet potatoes to my salad.

I have a giant white couch & I shot this and ate it right there on that very couch. Didn’t even make it to the kitchen table. Don’t tell my kids that ’cause they are not allowed to eat on the white couch.

If you don’t have Prosciutto or you can’t find it ~ no worries. Use bacon or ham.

Use your favorite cheese(s) too. I did a mix of sharp white and mild yellow cheddar for this recipe.

No excuses about finding the cauliflower, OK?

I KNOW you can source that. It is pan seared and then roasted. The nutty flavor is irresistible!

What kind of cheese do you think you will put on this?

Prosciutto Cheddar Cauliflower Gratin

Ingredients

  • 1 head Cauliflower, trim into large bite size florets
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • Garlic Salt
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Cracked Black Pepper
  • 4 ounces sliced Prosciutto, trim fat & pull apart into pieces
  • 3 ounces Cheddar Cheese
  • top with fresh Cilantro or Parsley

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 375 F with the rack in the middle. In a large saute pan heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add cauliflower and cook for about 7-10 minutes until golden brown on all sides. Season with garlic salt, smoked paprika and pepper.Toss with a pair of tongs so it cooks evenly.
  • Spray a casserole dish with olive oil. Add cauliflower in a single layer. Bake for 10-15 minutes depending on how soft you want it. (I go with 10 minutes.) Open oven and top cauliflower with prosciutto and cheese. Broil for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted and slightly browned. Top with fresh Cilantro or Parsley.

My family can never get enough cauliflower. This gratin looks amazing!

This looks divine and so cozy for the cold weather! I’d have a hard time deciding on what cheese I’d use. A melty fontina sounds nice, but just simple parm crisped up over the top wouldn’t be unfortunate either!

A great combination! This gratin looks very tasty.

Cheers,

This does look so perfect. I love the crispy cauliflower in there. Cheddar cheese does look pretty perfect, but a gruyere wouldnt be so bad either :) Yum!!

This looks delicious. I never would have thought to top it on a green salad but I love that idea! Delicious.

I love this dish and love that you added sweet potatoes to your salad! So perfect! I have some cauliflower that needs some roasting! I bet I could get my Husband to eat it, if I include bacon! Great recipe!

27 Aimee @ Simple Bites February 18, 2013 at 6:15 pm

I’m dying to make this!! I think I’d add some capers and keep the cheddar!

Reply

Aimee, the capers are a great idea and one I will try!

33 kirsten@FarmFreshFeasts February 19, 2013 at 8:04 am

This looks like it would hit all my favorite notes–and I love how crispy bits of prosciutto get when they are baked–that’s an even better texture contrast than I usually get in a gratin. Thanks, Marla!

I love every single one of these flavors, Marla! Looks fantastic!

Love the saltiness the prosciutto adds to this dish!

Marla I LOVE this recipe. I’ve been really into cauliflower lately. I have only had it my grandma’s way, which is battered fried – so good but a million calories. Recently I made a gratin and my kids loved it and then just last week I made a cauliflower curry stew and they also loved it. I’m going to have to try this one next.

37 Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen February 21, 2013 at 12:14 am

You can’t beat cauliflower and cheese together, I like it with goat cheese as well.

38 Laura | My Little Gourmet February 22, 2013 at 11:07 am

Finally got around to making this today. I used Gouda as my cheese and I have only one word: YUM! Thanks for the delicious recipe.
