This is an elegant dish. Great for Thanksgiving or Christmas. The cauliflower is mellow and cheesy with a little crunch from the bread crumbs.

This is a great way to serve cauliflower. We loved the creamy cheesy sauce (I used cheddar) and the crunchy topping. A wonderful side dish that is easy to prepare. I'm so glad I found this. :-)

Was super easy and VERY good, was a real crowd pleaser. I followed the recipe but added a little more cheese and some bacon bits.

Fantastic comfort food and so easy! I doubled the recipe by using a head of fresh cauliflower, microwaved for 8 minutes instead of boiling it, and an additional bag of previously frozen broccoli/cauliflower mix. I doubled the cream and Colby Jack cheese for the extra veggies and I also made it lower carb by using crushed pork rinds instead of the breadcrumbs. I think I could eat the whole pan myself! This one is a definite keeper!
