Cauliflower Grilled Cheese
I saw a version of this on the Chew and it looked delicious but was too much work.
One large head of cauliflower
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
One thin sliced onion
Ten slices American cheese
Ten slices Hoffman cheddar cheese
Two tablespoon butter
Slice the cauliflower into 1/2 inch slices
I removed the bottom stem but keep most of the core so the cauliflower would keep its shape.
I got 6 slices to make three sandwiches but cook the rest of the cauliflower and you could make small sandwiches.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
Dip all the cauliflower, including the smaller pieces, into the egg wash
Dredge in the seasoned flour
Dredge the onion in the flour
Grease a baking pan with two tablespoons oil
Place the flowered cauliflower in a single layer on the pan.
Bake for ten minutes and then flip the cauliflower over for another 5 minutes.
Try to pair the slices up so they kind of fit together.
They do not have to be perfect.
Put two slices of American cheese and two slices of Hoffman Cheddar cheese on three of the cauliflower slices.
Top with another cauliflower slice
Heat a pan with the butter and add the thin onion slices
Place the cauliflower sandwich on top of the onions and brown one side then flip it over and brown the other side.
Cook till the cheese is melted but try not to burn them so use a medium heat.
Place on a plate with sliced apples
I had to eat this with a fork and knife because it was so cheesy.
I also made about three more small sandwiches.
Mix the leftover smaller pieces of cauliflower with the remaining egg, flour and onion and pour it in the buttered pan.
Just before it was fully cooked I put some cheese on top
Plated it and microwaved it for 15 seconds until all the cheese melted
It was a delicious omelette.
You can make the cauliflower sandwiches ahead of time, refrigerate them and cook them when you need them.
After we bake the cauliflower, we can fry the onions in the butter and then make open face sandwiches with the cheese and onion and bake them till the cheese melts.
If I had another cauliflower I would try it so off I go to the market.
These are on my favorite menu list.
