1 cup chicken stock
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup dry white wine

3. Preheat oven to 400° F.

4. In a pan over medium heat melt the butter and add in the shallots and stems and cook about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the garlic and cook 30 more seconds.

5. Stir in the wine, stock and heavy cream and cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half.

6. Spread the cauliflower florets over the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.

7. Puree the liquid mixture from the pan in a blender until smooth and pour over the florets. Season with salt and pepper and stir.

8. Top with the grated cheese and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Sprinkle the crispy bacon on top and bake an additional 5 minutes.

Very good but a little liquidy
Next time I think I'll cut the liquids in half because It came out a little runny.

I did use a 9 inch deep round baking dish instead of the 9x13 so that might have had something to do with it too.
