This Recipe includes
|Cauliflower – fresh cauliflower, chopped into florets.|
|Grated cheese – cheddar, gruyère, mozzarella, or emmental cheese.|
|Sausages – any type of beef, pork, lamb, chicken or turkey sausages.|
Spices and flavoring ingredients:
|Ginger – ground ginger spice for flavor|

- You can use any type of sausages in this recipe including beef, pork, lamb, chicken or turkey sausages. I do recommend thicker sausages that are more flavorful such as Italian sausages, pork bratwurst, saucisse de toulouse, chipotle sausages, etc.
- If using frozen cauliflower, let them defrost for 30 minutes in advance.
Why we love it
If you are ever short of inspiration and time, this is a classic dinner recipe that combines a couple of favorites: sausage and cauliflower.
With plenty of protein, veggies, and cheese, it is delicious and easy to make and is bound to please the pickiest of eaters.
Just chop up all the ingredients, add a few spices, and stick it in the oven. The key is to add the cheese towards the end, so that the sausages can properly cook, and the cheese doesn’t get burnt.
It is quite a hearty meal, perfect for those dark winter nights when you are looking for something warm and filling. You can add a couple of varieties of cheese instead of just one, to add even more depth of flavor in the casserole.
What to serve with it?
How to store it?
You can easily prepare this sausage and cauliflower dish in advance, and even keep it overnight in the fridge. You can keep it in airtight glass containers in the fridge, and take it the next day for a packed lunch.
I wouldn’t recommend freezing it however, as the cheese may not do well in the freezer.
