I came across this a few years ago trying to figure out someway to fix Cauiflower other than having it on a tray with carrots and celery with dip. This is very easy and quick. If you can use a MICROWAVE your good to go!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and clean one head of cauliflower removing all the leaves and core.
  2. In a separate bowl mix together Miracle Whip, mustard, hot sauce,salt and pepper. Coat the top of the caulifower with the mixture.
  3. In a deep MICROWAVE proof baking dish,add cauliflower then cover with lid,cook in microwave for 7 minutes.
  4. Check cauliflower for desired doneness, then add the cheese on top of the sauce that is on the cauliflower.
  5. Microwave for one minute, add cheese, put back in the microwave for 20 seconds to melt the cheese on top of the cauliflower. Serve hot!

Bought a cauliflower the other day. Discovered this recipe and decided to try it. Amazingly the cauliflower cooked perfectly in the microwave oven. Topping was great & served it to company for dinner. Every bit was eaten! Only change was I substituted easy melting cheese for the American cheese/shredded cheese. Worked very well. Yummy recipe for a vegetable.
