I want to make cauliflower cheese, but what else can I put on the plate? Am kind of making it already so quick answers would be nice!

ExBrightonBell Mon 20-Jan-14 19:50:15

Green veg, and mashed potato would be my suggestion!

Ham. Potato.

Garlic bread & salad.
Can I have some please?!

Well I can happily eat it on it's own
You could add chorizo to spice it up
It's often served with a roast dinner
Or any meat really: steak, gammon
Jacket potato would be too much I think

Weirdly, Mexican spicy bean burgers go amazingly well.

A nice bit of gammon.

We always have cauli cheese with sausages. Those meaty buggers, 98% pork.

VelvetStrider Mon 20-Jan-14 19:52:52

Put other stuff into the cauliflower cheese, then you don't have to make anything else. Mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers....

Pussycatdolls post looks like a poem.

Agree with others: cauliflower cheese is great with pork - sausage, bacon (grilled and crispy)

Catsmamma Mon 20-Jan-14 19:53:53

More bacon.

what's not to like?

Home-made potato wedges and petit pois.

Agree with everyone who said sausages! Maybe some green veg too, peas or green beans.

we are having it with roast potatoes and gammon tonight with baby corn.

Oh fantastic, thank you all. I'm a rubbish cook and I just looked up how to do this tonight, and it sounds like it's going to be really useful - I love the sound of all the things above and will now be eating it for weeks while I try ALL the suggestions grin

It's even a proper cooked thing, not just a thing on toast which are the only other things I can make. And it's come out only just a little teeny weeny bit lumpy. Result. Thanks folks!

Chicken breast and mash. Yum

We do it with wee roast potatoes and peas, and put broccoli and red onion as well as cauli in the cheese. Can also add mushrooms/leek/ a bit of sweet potato - ANYTHING is good when in a cheese sauce.

Mmmmm keep 'em coming, I might even threaten to make my DP dinner some time and he'll assume he's getting toast and then I'll put leeks and red onions and sausages and bacon and a poem in it grin

Fairylea Mon 20-Jan-14 20:14:24

Bacon and roast potatoes!

pussyCatDoll's post does look like a poem grin

I stroked my chin while reading it.

She really captures the moment in her imagery

Sausages, ketchup, jacket potato
