Cheesy Ham & Cauliflower Casserole

"The fire-roasted peppers and chipotle give this dish a slightly smoky bite. If you don't like the smoky flavor you can substitute ground cayenne for the chipotle and chopped pimentos or red bell peppers for the fire-roasted peppers."

  • Cut cauliflower into 1/2-inch pieces; steam or microwave until just tender. Drain in a colander and set aside.
  • Saute onion and cubed ham in butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat until onions are translucent.
  • Stir in cheese sauce, fire-roasted peppers, and chipotle pepper and reduce heat to medium-low.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce is heated through.
  • Add about half of the shredded cheddar and stir until melted. Repeat with the remaining cheddar.
  • Add salt and freshly-ground black pepper to taste.
  • Add cooked cauliflower to sauce and stir gently to distribute sauce evenly.
  • Pour into a buttered casserole dish and bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes or until bubbly.

    Does anyone have any idea how many carbs would be in a serving of this casserole! It sounds soooooo good and I am going to make it!

    This is a meal in itself, so tasty and so easy to make. I used bacon instead of ham and since I cooked my bacon in the oven Recipe #208501 I zapped my onions in the microwave. I also used French Tart's cheese sauce from her Recipe #216237 instead of store bought but other than that I followed the recipe exactally. Fabulous recipe that I will make over and over again.

    Great stuff! As per the recipe intro, I substituted chopped red bell pepper for the fire-roasted peppers; otherwise, I made it exactly as written. I'd love to try it with the fire-roasted peppers or pimientos sometime. The kids loved it because it's really cheesey. No extra salt is really necessary. Thanx for shring this. I'll make this again!
