Thank you!! My Mom always made this for special occasions. I am making a recipe box for my son and lost Mom's recipe....I always just do it from my head. Needed the specific measurements. I am so glad you posted this!

Delicious! I love that it's a homemade cheese sauce. Plus it's not hard to do. The topping is outstanding-we loved it(my kids do like cauliflower anyway so it was really easy to get them to eat this.) I will definitely make this again. Thanks Marie!

Nice enough but rather bland for my taste. I'd make sure to use sharp cheddar if I made this again and maybe a shot or two of hot sauce. Again, pleasant but not a standout.
