I've been using this recipe for about 3 or 4 years now...HUGE hit at thanksgiving! Definitely a must try, even my son who "hates cauliflower" loves this one.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add chicken stock and 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil, 1 turn of the pan, to a deep pot.
  2. Trim away greens and stems from the base of cauliflower. Cut away the core with a sharp paring knife. Set cored head into pot with broth.

  4. Uncover the pot and mash the cauliflower.
  5. Let some liquid cook off as you smash the cheeses into the cauliflower.
  6. As the mixture thickens, turn off heat and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Stir in chives and transfer cauliflower to as serving dish.
