Cauliflower Sandwich Open Faced
This sandwich tastes so much better than I expected, so of course I had to share it with you!
I have to tell you right away that although this may not be the prettiest looking sammie it sure does make up for it’s looks in flavor!
I needed to use up a head of cauliflower that has been hogging all the space in my vegetable drawer.
So while searching for some inspiration I came across this Roasted Cauliflower Melt.
The flavors sounded so interesting and something I would see at a fancy-dancy vegetarian restaurants in town. It’s excellent!
The recipe says that it is enough for four servings, but I made two open face sandwiches, riced the florets that didn’t fit on one baking sheet.
Sam ate the rest of the roasted cauliflower!
Best Tasting Roasted Cauliflower
That kid is alway hungry – always! Alan and I just ate our cauliflower cheddar melts when Sam came into the kitchen starving!
Since there was plenty of cauliflower I suggested a melt, but he looked at the veggies and said, “nawh, I’ll pass”
Not a second later I suggested tossing an egg on top with the cheese and he immediately perked up!
“Yeah, I’m down!” He devoured the rest of the veggies and now I wish I would have not said a word so I would have leftovers – haha!
