Posted by Fernando Acosta on

Indulge in the classic comfort of Baked Cauliflower and Cheese reimagined for the stylish and practical RJ Legend Mini Dutch Oven Pot Set. This recipe transforms a beloved family favorite into an elegant, individualized culinary experience. 

Why use an RJ Legend Mini Pot?

The RJ Legend Mini Dutch Oven Pot Set is excellently suited for baking cauliflower and cheese, thanks to its unique features that enhance cooking and presentation. The cast iron cocotte's high heat retention is vital for achieving the perfect texture in baked cauliflower and cheese, ensuring even, consistent heating for a gooey, evenly browned cheese topping. Additionally, the enamel coating offers practical benefits, such as a non-stick surface for easy release and cleaning, especially with cheese-heavy dishes, while also adding to the pot's durability. The pots' 5.5-inch diameter makes them ideal for single servings, aligning with modern trends of individualized portions, and offering a convenient, elegant way to serve this classic comfort food in family settings and larger gatherings.


  • 2 cups cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons almond flour for a low-carb 
  • 1 1/2 cups low-carb milk alternative

Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C), as this is essential for both the regular and low-carb versions.

Cook Low-Carb Macaroni Alternative: Instead of traditional macaroni, use a low-carb alternative like cooked cauliflower. Prepare it as per its instructions until it reaches a texture similar to al dente pasta.

Make Low-Carb Cheese Sauce: Melt butter in a saucepan, then stir in a low-carb flour alternative like almond flour. Gradually whisk in a low-carb milk alternative, such as unsweetened almond milk, and add salt, pepper, and paprika. Cook until the sauce thickens.

Combine Low-Carb Macaroni Alternative and Sauce: Combine the cooked low-carb alternative (like cauliflower) with the smooth cheddar and Parmesan cheese sauce.

Fill Mini Dutch Ovens: Spoon the mixture into RJ Legend Mini Dutch Oven Pots. If desired, top with additional cheese and an alternative to breadcrumbs, like crushed almond flour-based crumbs, for a crunchy topping.

Bake: Place the mini pots in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden and bubbly, just like the regular version.

Serve: Allow the pots to cool slightly before serving. Use oven mitts to handle the hot pots
