- 2 large heads cauliflower
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 2 cups shredded Cheddar
- Ranch dressing, for drizzling
- 8 slices cooked bacon
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
Step 1: Remove and discard the leaves from each cauliflower head, then trim the stem so that the cauliflower can lay flat on cutting board. (Leave the core intact!)
Step 2: Cut each cauliflower into thick “steaks” about 3/4″ thick. Reserve any loose florets to cook with the steaks. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic powder, and paprika. Season mixture with salt and pepper.
Step 3: Heat a grill or a grill pan to medium. Brush one side of each steak with the olive oil mixture and place the brushed side down on a grill. Brush the top sides with the olive oil mixture and cook until tender and charred in spots, about 8 minutes per side. Top each cauliflower with cheese and cook until melted.
Step 4: Toss extra florets in the olive oil mixture and grill, turning often, until charred and tender, about 6 minutes.
Step 5: Drizzle cauliflower with ranch then sprinkle cooked bacon and chives on top.
