I'd give this recipe more than 5 stars if possible. One of my girlfriends came over for dinner, and we had to restrain ourselves from eating the entire dish in one sitting. I made the recipe as directed, but was a bit concerned that the bread crumbs might be too much, so I used only about half the crumb mixture on top, but will use the full amount next time. My head of cauliflower must have been extra large because I had much more than needed for a single layer in the gratin dish. So I did a single layer as directed, then added half the ham, then topped it with the remaining cauliflower and ham. While I think the recipe is perfect as is, next time I plan to add a cup of lima beans because I think they will compliment the recipe (and I love lima beans!). Thanks so much, we'll be making this recipe often!
