      Oh my!!! This was so good! I also used the micro for the first step. I didn't have any tarragon so I substituted parsley. I also used light mayo. It was the best cauliflower ever. My hubby and I ate the whole thing with dinner.

      Did this with a small head of cauliflower, it was excellent!! Instead of steaming, I cooked the cauliflower in the microwave, till tendercrisp, then followed your instructions for the oven. I cut the crust ingredients in half, it was just the right amount for a half size cauliflower. Served it in the casserole it was cooked in, it looked so nice whole; everyone just spooned themselves a portion. Thanks for sharing!!

      Ginny, you are absolutely correct, this has amazing potential! I'm on a diet that doesn't let you mix your proteins with carbs, and this is perfect! I steamed the cauliflower in the microwave, then added the sauce and finished it up in the oven. I used a combination of Edam and Parmesan cheese, and let it get really brown and crispy. I also didn't have any tarragon, so I used parsley. I can't wait to make this again, and again, and again...
