Cauliflower with bacon gratin
A lovely indulgent dish for a cold night.

1 tsp vegetable oil

200g bacon lardons

2 large onions, sliced

800g potatoes, thickly sliced

1kg cauliflower, cut into bite-size florets

100g medium-mature cheddar or Gruyère, coarsely grated

250ml double cream

Handful fresh coriander, chopped to serve

Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas mark 6.

Heat the oil in a pan and fry the bacon for 5 minutes until it starts to crisp.

Add the onion and cook until soft and golden.

Meanwhile, tip the potatoes into a large pan of water, making sure they are well covered.

Bring to a gentle boil, then add the cauliflower and cook everything until both are tender.

Tip into a colander and drain thoroughly.

In a gratin dish or baking dish, layer the potato and cauliflower, then scatter with bacon, onion and a small handful of cheese.

Drizzle each layer with a little cream and season with salt and pepper.

Continue until all the layers are finished.

Pour over the remaining cream and scatter with the last of the cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes until bubbling, scatter with the coriander.

Serve with a green salad if you like.
