This Three Cheese Cauliflower Bake recipe is one of my kids favorites and they don’t even know that they’re eating vegetables. Three cheese, cauliflower melty goodness all baked into one dish?! Get in ma belly! I friggin’ love it!
This casserole also has a hidden protein in the form of ground turkey. I don’t know about you but my kids are super picky eaters! So anytime that I can find a recipe with added meat and vegetables disguised with cheese that they actually like?! Winner, winner chicken dinner! Well, three cheese cauliflower bake dinner… you know what I mean *wink*.
You can totally pull all of the substitutions you want with this recipe. Not a fan of ground turkey? Use ground beef or sausage instead! I find that I can hide the mild ground turkey flavour more easily is all. Ground sausage would give this dish a spicier flavour though! Don’t have cheddar cheese? Use mozza instead or visa versa.
The only thing that I keep repeating, time after time, whenever I make this Three Cheese Cauliflower Bake IS the cauliflower. It gives the dish a creamy texture and flavour that my kids seem to love. Not changing a good thing there!
