I am giving this 5 stars even though I think some improvement can be made. I will definitely add some garlic salt next time and omit the salt. Also one egg should be plenty as others have reviewed. It also needed more of the olive oil spray than I used because the cauliflower came out a little dry. A great idea and very tasty and a recipe which I will be tweaking a little further. Thanks very much for posting.
