    Serves 6


    1 head of cauliflower

    2 tbsp. olive oil

    1 medium onion, diced

    4 slices bacon

    1 tbsp. minced garlic

    1 tsp. thyme

    12 oz. aged cheddar

    1 oz. parmesan cheese

    3 cups chicken broth

    ¼ cup heavy cream


    1. Chop the cauliflower, and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle olive oil and season it with salt and pepper. Bake for 35 minutes at 375°F.
    2. In a pot, cook the bacon until crispy. Add diced onion and fry it in the bacon grease. When it is tender, add the garlic and the thyme, and cook for 1 minute or less.
    3. Incorporate the chicken broth and cauliflower, and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.
    4. Once time is up, blend the ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Place back into the pot. Add the cheddar and the parmesan cheese, and stir until melted.
    5. Finally, add the bacon and the double cream, and mix well. If needed, simmer for 10 minutes more, or until heated.
