French Fridays with Dorie – Haiku
“Cauliflower Gratin” for French Friday’s with Dorie: Haiku Version.
Formerly I showed no love.
Now you really rock.
What is in a name?
I think Dorie got this wrong.
“Gratin”? I think not.
Not really a ‘side’!
Make a chic lunch out of it.
Good for any meal.
My late French Fridays.
Some things may never change…sigh.
Any Haiku comments?
Just a few notes on the recipe modifications. I added in a scant 1/2 teaspoon of dried, ground mustard – a secret ingredient for me in these types of dishes. It manages to jazz up the flavors without really adding any of its own. I also added just a bit of Parmesan as knew it would keep things from being too bland. I planned for this as our New Year’s morning brunch so I blanched the cauliflower and fried up the bacon the night before keeping them covered until assembly in the morning.
This added just a bit cooking time but it was well worth it as it made my hung-over morning that much easier.
