This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe (cauliflower-bacon gratin, p 362), was one that kind of flew under my radar when I was leafing through the book and marking things I wanted to make because I can’t imagine why I would not have flagged it – a gratin made with cheese, cream and bacon containing cauliflower (therefore making it somewhat healthy) – sounds right up my alley, right?
This was so easy to make, using leftover home-cured bacon from the final Charcutepalooza challenge meal and wowed guests and even Neil thought it wasn’t bad “for a vegetable”. I love how it puffed up, all soufflé like….
Would I make this again? You bet. A great way to use up all sorts of leftover vegetables because, you know, everything’s better with bacon and cream, right?

French Fridays with Dorie participants do not publish the recipes on our blogs, rather, we prefer if you purchase Around My French Table for yourselves (trust me, you definitely want this book!) which you can do here on Amazon or Amazon Canada. Or for free worldwide shipping, buy from The Book Depository. Go on, treat yourself and join us in the new year!
