This has been handed down from meine Mutti. She found it in a German magazine back in the 50's. This is the only recipe I use for making cauliflower. My kids wouldn't eat cauliflower any other way. We make it at least once a month.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In dutch oven, put 1 stick butter in center.
  2. Place steamed cauliflower on top of butter.
  3. In a medium size mixing bowl combine meat with bread, 1 egg, onion, green pepper, spices and ketchup.
  4. Form meat as a ring around the sides of the cauliflower.
  5. Top with sauce.
  6. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese [top with fresh tomatoes (optional) cut in wedges].
  7. Bake in 400 degree oven for 1 hour -- covered -- or until done.
  8. Serve with boiled potatoes, noodles, or french-garlic bread.
