An Eggcellent Baked Dish

Are you getting tired of my puns? Too bad! I have fun with them. Never stopping!!

For my daughter's birthday party a few weeks ago I experimented on our guests and tried out several new recipes (including the cake itself) but only one was from a cookbook and can thus be mentioned here. It was super easy (especially since I had someone else prepare the cauliflower and onions for me the night before) and delicious. You should make this for your next brunch. Yes, you.

Cauliflower Cheese Puff
from Mollie Katzen's Sunlight Cafe 

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups onions, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 cups cauliflower florets
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 5 ounces garlic and herb goat cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Lightly spray a 9"x13" pan with nonstick spray, then add the butter.
  3. Place the pan in the preheated oven for a minute; let the butter coat the bottom.
  4. Set aside.
  5. Heat a skillet on medium. Add the olive oil.
  6. Add the onions, saute` for 5 minutes, then stir in the salt and the cauliflower.
  7. Saute` over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cauliflower is just tender.
  8. Transfer this mixture to the prepared pan.
  9. While the cauliflower is cooking, combine the eggs, milk, flour, and cheese in a blender.
  10. Whip into a smooth batter and pour it over the cauliflower mixture in the pan.
  11. Bake in the center of the oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until puffed and golden.
  12. Serve hot or warm, cut into squares.
