Am thinking of doing cauliflower cheese this year with the dinner.

Is it a good addition?

Can I make it the day before then bung in oven christmas day?

We do when we go for Xmas dinner with MIL. Delicious! No idea how to cook it as I can't cook blush

No way. I love cauliflower cheese but it really doesn't go with roast dinners. I'm sure making it the day before would be fine though if you do.

Hell no!

Butterymuffin Fri 15-Dec-17 08:05:31

Of course! Love it. We make ours the day before.

No. For me cheese sauce doesn’t mix well with a roast (especially since we have bread sauce, cranberry sauce, applesauce AND gravy). I’d do roast cauliflower though.

MrsMotherHen Fri 15-Dec-17 08:06:38

I can make it so thats not a biggie. Its just weve never had it with a christmas dinner.

Yes, love it. But it works better with roast beef rather than turkey. Do it.

Oblomov17 Fri 15-Dec-17 08:09:18

No. Only because we have steamed broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and peas.

No. Until a few months back I had never even heard of this but some freinds took me to a carvery chain place and they did it. Really really weird combination imo. Not to mention extra work you don't really need on Christmas Day.

We are having lamb and turkey. So far menu is.
Turkey joint
Leg of lamb
Pigs in blanket
Bacon wrapped stuffing balls
Roast potatoes
Yorkshire puds
Roast carrots and parsnips
Red cabbage
Sprouts
Brocolli and carrots steamed
Cauliflower cheese?
Gravy

Its all serve your self style so seems a bit much for 6 adults and 2 babies.

No, but I’d be pleased if it was there.

BroomstickOfLove Fri 15-Dec-17 08:13:02

No. I think that it would overpower the bread sauce by being creamy but also tasting if cheese and cauliflower.

GalactiCat Fri 15-Dec-17 08:14:28

Oh hell yes. In fact I'm doing cauliflower and broccoli cheese bake.
(I'd have cauliflower cheese with everything if I had my way!)

Absolutely!! It’s great with a roast.

TheScottishPlay Fri 15-Dec-17 08:16:03

Yes, I will be. DM and DH enjoy a little with their roast beef. DS and I have it as part of our veggie dinner.

Nanasueathome Fri 15-Dec-17 08:18:46

Cauliflower cheese is compulsory with Christmas dinner in my house

Checklist Fri 15-Dec-17 08:18:58

We have it because DD loves it! I make enough for 7 people, and given the chance she would eat all of it!

DivisionBelle Fri 15-Dec-17 08:36:16

No, and we don’t have Yorkshires either.

I don’t think it goes with turkey or beef.

But no reason why you can’t if you like it.

Ninepence Fri 15-Dec-17 08:39:42

No no no.

(I'm also in the 'no jelly in a trifle' camp, is there a thread this year?)

ThunderboltsLightning Fri 15-Dec-17 08:42:02

Never at christmas but i do sometimes have it with a roast. I love the cheesy gravy blush

Crumbs1 Fri 15-Dec-17 08:43:12

Yes we always have cauliflower cheese. Lots don’t like bread sauce or gravy but want something more moist with the turkey.
We also have Yorkshire puddings even though we don’t have beef. It feels slightly naughty but it’s by popular demand.

flissfloss65 Fri 15-Dec-17 08:45:37

I lovecauliflower cheese but don't like the idea of it with a roast. I love gravy across my dinner and dislike the idea of it mixing with the cheese.

FireflyGirl Fri 15-Dec-17 08:47:23

Absolutely! But then I'm not a fan of gravy, so would otherwise have a dry dinner.

It's a case of the more the merrier in our family. DM forgot the Yorkshires in the oven one Christmas Day, and nearly had a riot on her hands...

Not usually but might do this year, we are veggie and it will go down a treat.
