This quick, easy one-dish meal was found in Sobey's Inspired Magazine. I haven't tried it yet but hope to soon.

Made your recipe as given, with one slight exception ~ I substituted 3 tablespoons of Hormel Real Bacon Pieces for the cut up bacon listed! It all came together very nicely & we had a very enjoyable cauliflower side! I particularly liked the nuts in this one! Thanks for sharing it!
