EASY CHEESY SHEET PAN ROASTED CAULIFLOWER this roasted cauliflower is an easy side dish to throw together for basically any and every meal, and it's always satisfying.

I’ve got my eye on more than a few “savoury” or dinner-related recipes to work on, as I’ve determined I’m severely lacking in that department, but I swear to god I don’t only eat cookies and muffins all day long.  That being said, where I may got the extra mile in the cookies/muffins/baked treats in general department, I also tend to be pretty lazy, and look for efficient methods of baking/cooking/prepping. After all, when you are eating whole, real foods there’s a general amount of prep and “time in the kitchen” that comes with it no matter what, it’s built in to the lifestyle/way of eating. If I’m already going to be spending a significant amount of time in the kitchen, I try to maximize what I get out of that time, is basically what I am saying here.

How do I do that, exactly? By making a lot of one-bowl-and-done baked goods lololol. Seriously, though, if you’ve tried my recipes you know it’s nothing too fancy (aka two bowls – I try to avoid it whenever possible). For my meals proper, I also have a pretty good rotation and method in tow.

Among the side dishes in my weekly or bi-weekly rotation is the sheet pan roasted cauliflower, which I am finally sharing with you all today. Now, I did cover this version with cheese, because everything is better roasted with a layer of cheese, but I want to make it clear that this sheet pan roasted cauliflower is also JUST AS DELICIOUS without the cheese. I swear. This stuff is like (salty lol) candy almost, when I pop it out of the oven my boyfriend and I devour it. A sheet pan won’t last long — but when you add the cheese to it, okay, then, it’s *definitely* gone in zero point two seconds.

If you’re looking for a fast and satisfying side dish that basically goes with everything, including salad — you can add this stuff cold to your salad the next day– this is the dish, or rather sheet pan, for you. 

I also used my brand new knife from Tuo Cutlery to chop up this cauliflower– or rather, I’ve been using it to chop basically all my veggies since they sent it to me– for free.99 to be clear, and I am not mad at it– it’s actually the sharpest/best knife in my drawer right now (!!). Check out more on their website if you’re curious, but I do like it, and I find the prices are affordable as far as “fancy” knives go (so, also, not that fancy).

If you do try making this super duper easy cauliflower, I’d love to see/know how it went (aka slide in my comment section or my DMs). You can always follow me on Instagram @grainfreee for more daily food inspiration.

*Please note, while Tuo Cutlery did send me the knife/I did not purchase it, the views expressed are solely my own and I made this recipe of my own accord! I love the knife regardless, and therefore you will probably see it pop up in other photos as I do use it and enjoy it daily!!

easy cheesy sheet pan cauliflower: ingredients

  • 1/2 head of cauliflower approximately (you can easily double this recipe and make the whole head, but you’ll need two sheet pans!)
  • 1/2 tsp of salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp of black pepper (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp of dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup old cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup of fresh parmesan cheese, grated

easy cheesy sheet pan cauliflower: how to

  1. Start by cleaning and drying your cauliflower completely.
  2. Chop up your cauliflower, for this recipe it’s good to slice the cauliflower thinly, with the head sitting right side up (see photos), and slicing horizontally– from there, breaking off the pieces into smaller ones, and keeping some larger pieces intact.
  3. Spread the pieces of cauliflower roughly across a large baking tray, lined with parchment paper for an easy clean-up. I love to include all the little pieces of cauliflower as they get nice and crispy and they are (almost) the best part!
  4. Now mix your salt, pepper and oregano together in a small spice bowl, and sprinkle desired amount across the cauliflower.
  5. Sprinkle the grated cheddar across the cauliflower, ending with a generous serving of grated parmesan cheese.
  6. Roast in a preheated at 400 for 30 minutes, until cheese is getting browned on top.
