Eggs, Bacon and Cauliflower Like Fries

I’m a believer in all things in moderation and that includes lovely magical bacon. Luckily I’ve found a brand of bacon that is organic and grass-fed, it’s appropriately called Pasture Perfect Pork.  The eggs I used are Biodynamic and were from Bullfrog Gully farms.

The Cauliflower Like Fries recipe is from Mariana Cotlear’s blog Epicuriosa– I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it. The way the cauliflower becomes crispy and in a way is slightly sweet and not to forget its major appeal is that it is really very delicious. Here I’ve made Mariana’s ‘Cauliflower Like Fries’ and added a piece of bacon and an egg on top (really yummy!).

Eggs, Bacon and Cauliflower Like Fries

Adapted from Mariana Cotlear’s Epicuriosa.

  • Eggs
  • Bacon
  • Cauliflower
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper

How to:

  1. Chop up your cauliflower in small pieces. Mix with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place in a baking dish and cook for 30-40 minutes until crispy.
  2. Cook the eggs and bacon however you like and serve with the cauliflower like fries.


  • Make scrambled eggs and then mix in the caulilfower fries and bacon before serving.
  • Make a poached egg. Add sliced bacon to the baking cauliflower and cook until the bacon as well as the cauliflower becomes crispy.
  • Make an omelette and add stir in the bacon & fries.

Oh my goodness…this sounds amazing! As if the crispy, delicious cauliflower were not enough… YUM!! I should really eat breakfast before I go around blog-hopping ;)

Roasted cauliflower is amazing. I am so glad I “discovered” it a few years ago. When cauli is in season, I just can’t eat enough of it.

I had to make this as soon as i read it!  It's wonderful!  I've never had cauliflower cooked like this and loved it. I cooked extra so for lunch i'm having the cauliflower with parmasan cheese on top.

Oh I’m so glad you liked it Terri! I think I shall have to make it again now!! Ohh that sounds so nice with Parmesan cheese on top! Yum! I shall have to try that! Thanks for the suggestion.

I love roasted cauliflower! You should try roasted broccolli too. This dish looks fantastic… I'm going to try to find that great bacon.


Michelle June 17, 2010 at 1:28 am

Hi Alyss.

You know the other day I was looking at some broccoli and I thought I wonder if I can roast you broccoli! I’m definitely going to try roasted broccoli now thanks!

Yeah it’s good bacon! Hopefully you’re in Australia (where I am) otherwise you might not be able to find it (it’s an Australian Farm).

Fabulous photos! I could definitely go for this meal! I've had cauliflower fried like popcorn shrimp before and it was so good. It really looked and tasted like popcorn shrimp.


Michelle June 17, 2010 at 9:01 am

Hi Shirley, thanks for visiting!
Oh yeah popcorn shrimp, what’s that like? I’ve never had it!
Sounds pretty interesting!
