My father-in-law's all time favourite vegetable. I have to make it just about every time they come for dinner. You can make this ahead of time and pop it in the oven just before you need it.

Really liked this. I followed this recipe exactly because it didn't have anything that needed changing. We love cauliflower in cheese and this is a good one!

Delicious! I upped the amount of breadcrumbs a bit because I like the crunch. Yum!

I totally loved this dish! I made as written except used cheddar cheese as that was all I had on hand. My husband really liked it too and he is not big on cauliflower. This is going in my book of "favourites". Thx bert!
