WWDH - Cauliflower, Caramelized Onion and Fontina Gratin

It was my turn to pick for Wednesday with Donna Hay this week, and I chose Cauliflower, Caramelized Onion and Fontina Gratin from p134 of Donna Hay Magazine Dec/Jan 2015.  The recipe has also been published online here.  In retrospect, I am not sure what drew me to this dish - maybe it was because I thought it would be like potato dauphinois with cauliflower?

This dish was largely thinly sliced cauliflower, caramelised onion and cheese melted together in the oven.  Simple.  I subbed fontina out for cheddar.

In the end, it was pretty good as a side dish.  Not so amazing that I would make it again in a hurry, but a little different.  You could make your own caramelised onions, but I used jarred as per the recipe, because those gorgeous caramelised onions take forever to make.

To see what our other WWDH group members thought of this dish, visit the LYL section of the WWDH website.

I didn't know that you could buy jarred caramelised onions - but I am quite tempted by a fancy cauliflower cheese!

Oh, I thought this was superb. Caramelised onions and cauliflower are a great combination. Plus I am firmly in the camp that cheese improves everything. :)

What a great pick! Melty cheese dishes are always popular in this neck of the woods. Yours looks particularly good, I wish mine had browned like that on the top, next time, right?
