    acerast's Note:

    Cauliflower is a favorite in Finland. This is from Florence Schwartz's "Vegetable Cooking of All Nations" (a discarded library book full of recipe gems that I bought about 25 years ago at a library book sale for 50 cents :)

      I liked it. I think it would make a yummy and different breakfast casserole, too. I steamed my cauliflower, and I used skim milk, which made the mixture a little thin but worked ok. Nice recipe.

      Excellent! I used the custard gravy to serve over boiled chunk potatoes and I made my famous Finn Bread(my lovely adopted Finn Aunts taught me to make it) and served with flat cheese. This was a heavy satisfying meal without meat. The cauliflower had just the right flavor to compliment the Finn Bread and cheese. I did chop some green onions into the custard before baking. Thanks for posting!

      Hi acerast, didn't know that cauliflower is a favorite in Finland! I have made this twice; once as is and the other time my way! I used your recipe as the basis; but added cheddar cheese (shredded), crushed red pepper flakes (for that extra zing) & cut down on the salt because of the cheese, it too was very good! I love your recipe and it's variation! Thank you for posting, Diane :)
