Cauliflower cheese is a very British comfort food. When I get a craving for a cheesy sauce it is to cauliflower and not macaroni that I turn. My most recent incarnation of the dish uses smoked bacon and smoked 5 year old cheddar from Thurn’s. I made it for lunch last week and it was so delicious that I decided to make it for the Restaurant Widow pot luck last night.

Bacon is one of the most popular topics on Columbus Underground and as CMH Gourmand observes ‘in Columbus, Bacon is the new Black’. It is therefore of no surprise that sooner or later a bacon explosion would appear. Well, actually two bacon explosions, we are not ones to do things by half. The bacon explosion was created by the BBQ addicts bloggers in December 2008 and has become an internet phenomenon, even being featured in the New York Times. Here is their official recipe.  It is bacon, wrapped in sausage, wrapped in more (woven) bacon. You definitely need to be a pork fan and vegetarians […]
