The Perfect Holiday Side Dish

With Thanksgiving arriving so late this year, it seems like we're all sprinting to the finish line. I'm trying to breathe and enjoy the build up to the big day rather than just working to tick things off my check list. With the whole, 'slowing down and savoring the season' thing in mind, I wanted to share one of my favorite dishes. I only seem to make it around the holidays - with good reason: It's decadent and delicious! We spent Thanksgiving with my husband's family and this was one of my contributions. It was again taste tested at our office Holiday Party this past weekend, and I think it met with good reviews. It will be making its final appearance of the season at Christmas with my side of the family. I posted this picture to my Facebook page on Thanksgiving morning and received quite a few requests for the recipe. I think it originally came from the Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook. Any modifications I've made are in parentheses. My personal belief is that anything that starts with a full stick of butter and ends with two cups of Swiss cheese can only bring good things!

Cauliflower Au Gratin Ingredients: 6 Tbs butter 4 cloves garlic 4 oz Prosciutto (sliced thin and diced) 1 head of cauliflower (cut into inch slices) 1 cups cream (I always use 2% milk) 2 Tbs Flour 1 pinch Cayenne Salt and pepper to taste 1 cups shredded Swiss cheese (okay, I add more...) cup chopped fresh parsley (to me, this seems like a lot I use less) In a large skillet, melt butter, add garlic and prosciutto, cook for about 2-3 minutes Add cauliflower and cook until it loses its crispness Blend flour and cream together then add to the skillet Add peppers and salt Heat to a boil, then remove from burner Add 1 cup of shredded Swiss and mix well Pour entire mixture into a casserole dish Sprinkle the remaining Swiss on top Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes In the last 10 minutes, sprinkle with fresh parsley If you're looking for more recipes to add to your holiday repertoire, be sure to check out our Pinterest Boards and of course, one of our very favorite bloggers, the amazing Pioneer Woman.
