We love to eat cauliflower made this way.

I recently tried a very similar recipe given to me by a friend. The only difference was the addition of 1/8 tsp nutmeg to be added in Step 2. I liked the addition of the nutmeg which brightened up the dish and added just a little something different and unexpected, but this recipe would be good without it. I also steamed some fresh cauliflower instead of using frozen and reduced the amount of butter and oil by about half for health reasons. Thanks for posting this recipe. I will definitely keep it and use it many times in the future.
