Eine Schone Melousine

Recipe by Chef Booshman

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.

Wow! This is my new favorite way to have cauliflower. We loved the sauce and the meat loaf and the cauliflower couldn't be better! Thanks!!
