Sheet Pan Cauliflower Au Gratin and Video Tutorial

Oh my gosh, you guys.  This Cauliflower.   

So amazing, and this just reiterates why I have an obsession with pepper jack cheese.   This pepper jack cheese adds just a little kick to this dish.   Just enough kick to make the dish interesting, but I promise you that the kiddos will still eat this

While some people might be traditionalists when it comes to side dishes that are served during the holidays, I am most certainly not.   When I host a holiday gathering, I love coming up with new side dish ideas.  Don’t worry.  I won’t touch the tradition of the Thanksgiving Turkey or the Christmas Ham!

it is almost necessary to make this cauliflower au gratin on a sheet pan.  Parts of this were so crispy and cheesy!  Amazing!

This is an amazing way to eat your veggies during get-togethers this holiday season!  Most people have no problem eating a plate, full of vegetables when it is covered in amazing cheese sauce!

Just like anyone who lives in the Midwest, I love Wisconsin cheese !  Here in Iowa, we have lots of Wisconsin cheese available in our grocery stores, and Crystal Farms® is a brand that I love keeping around!  You can tell the difference in the taste!

Crystal Farms® Cheese is one of the largest cheese brands in the country, and is located in Lake Mills, Wisconsin.   Crystal Farms® products are all high in calcium, gluten-free and contain very little preservatives.

You can find Crystal Farms® Cheese in the refrigerated dairy section in your grocery store.

Pepper Jack Cauliflower Al Gratin 


1 head of cauliflower, chopped

1 cup of milk

1/2 cup of half and half

1 cup of shredded Crystal Farms® Pepper Jack Cheese, or another flavor of Crystal Farms® 

Cheese.   You will want to separate these into two 1/2 cups 

1 tablespoon of butter

1-2 cloves of garlic

Method: In a saucepan, over medium heat, heat butter and garlic.  Add milk and half and half.  Bring the mixture to a boil.  Add 1/2 of the pepper jack cheese and stir.   Set aside.   On a sheet pan, arrange chopped cauliflower.  Pour the cheese sauce over the cauliflower and mix.  Place foil over the cauliflower and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Remove the foil and sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top of the cauliflower.  Set Oven temp to broil and bake until the top of the cauliflower and cheese gets crispy.

This Cauliflower Al Gratin is a fun way to switch up your side dishes this holiday season!
