This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of Anolon.5 Ingredient Skillet Cauliflower and Gouda GratinWell, friends—It’s the FINAL day of 5 Ingredient Thanksgiving Sides Recipe Week and we’re wrapping things up with perhaps the most cozy side dish, plus an amazing giveaway from Anolon Accolade cookware!

I’d love to hear which recipe this week has been your favorite or which you plan to include in your Thanksgiving spread? I’m personally leaning towards the pomegranate-glazed carrots or brown butter butternut squash, but there’s a very good chance all five recipes will be making an appearance on our table. Move over, turkey! #hereforthesides5 Ingredient Skillet Cauliflower and Gouda GratinPotatoes aren’t the only players in the gratin game. This piping hot skillet of creamy cauliflower florets with a cheesy, golden crust will become your new go-to fall side.

This dish mostly comes together on the stovetop, but finishes under the broiler to get the cheesy breadcrumb topper nice and toasted. Giving the cauliflower a quick sear before simmering it in cashewmilk helps it pick up more caramelized, toasty flavor, while keeping the texture meaty. The result is a rich, rustic side with contrasting flavors and textures—a bit of crunch to round out the standard stuffing and mashes on the table.

And unlike most gratins, no heavy cream or butter is needed for this comforting side dish thanks to the nutty character and big flavor of Gouda cheese. 5 Ingredient Skillet Cauliflower and Gouda Gratin5 Ingredient Skillet Cauliflower and Gouda GratinI used the Anolon Accolade 12″ covered deep skillet for this dish, which worked like a dream. The thick base and slimmer walls of the skillet resulted in faster, even-heating of the cauliflower. The flat rivets on the stainless steel handle also made it easier to transfer the gratin in and out of the oven. And perhaps the best news of all? All of the cookware is oven and dishwasher safe up to 500°F and well-suited for all stove tops.

So let’s get to the giveaway, shall we? Anolon is hosting a giveaway for a chance for 5 people to a win a set of Anolon Accolade cookware. Open to US residents only aged 18 and over.
