Do you think I can use frozen cauliflower for this? I really want to make it for dinner tonight but I don’t have any fresh cauli.

Hi Carolyn, My name is Gail & I live in Australia. I am not familiar with Pepper Jack but I’m guessing it is some sort of peppery cheese ??? My husband & I really love Cauliflower & I’m very keen to make this recipe. Yes, my email address really is pepperjack. Gail …

Pepper Jack cheese is Monterey Jack cheese with tiny minced chili peppers in it. If you’re not familiar with Monterey Jack, I’ve included a link to the Wikipedia article about it so that you could substitute something similar that’s available where you live. My guess for a Pepper Jack substitute would be maybe about two teaspoons of minced chili peppers (low to medium heat, like jalapeños) added to a cup of shredded cheese. Hope this helps!

I made this dish today but used what I had at home because I didn’t want to drive in the snow. sigh
I had 3 ounces of New York Sharp Cheddar and used caramelized onions instead of bacon.
I don’t have words to tell you how delicious this dish was and so filling!
Thank you for this recipe, Carolyn! It will be in heavy rotation at my house!

This recipe Looks yummy…can this also be done in the oven for a quicker version instead of 3 hrs in a slow cooker?

Heather

I imagine you could just steam it on the stove top or in the microwave and it would be much faster. Slow cooker is good if you have the time earlier in the day to get it set up and then just forget it until time to eat.

Seems to me that 3 hrs even at low heat would turn cauliflower into a pretty strong tasting mush?

Lori

It actually did not, the cauliflower was cooked perfectly!

Roseann

MaryS, I have an old crock pot and it took longer for my cauliflower to become tender, but then again, my son came in to pick my granddaughter up and lifted the lid to see what was in there, maybe that’s why it took longer?
I was amazed at the perfect texture after I gave it an extra half hour.

Glen

What is the serving size?

Marilyn S

I get excited when I see a new recipe from you! When I serve my family one of your creations the meal or dessert is always a new family favorite! Keep cooking and I will keep cooking, too.
