Cauliflower bomb

This delicious cauliflower bomb has been around for a while now, but for the first time we have prepared it in Dutch Oven. Since we currently cook or bake a lot in the Dutch, we also wanted to try this recipe in it. 😊

With the cauliflower bomb you can count on healthy vegetables, meat and a delicious shell of bacon 🥓🥓🥓  that will you make happy. The whole is rounded off with a sauce of cream and ... 😋 Roasted onions.
