I found this recipe in an old Xmas cookbook some years back and have been making throughout the year. It is almost a meal by itself and most people enjoy the blend of flavors. Also, it can be made ahead which is always a boost.
- 1 medium cauliflower
- 6 slices bacon, cut in 1/2 inch pieces
- 3 tablespoons bacon drippings
- 1 1⁄2 cups soft breadcrumbs
- 3 medium tomatoes, sliced
- 2 tablespoons chopped green onions (or red)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dill weed (or to taste)
- 3⁄4 cup cheddar cheese, we prefer old (grated)
