    Cloudtears's Note:

    I got this recipe from my mother who happens to live in a retirement facility in Atlanta, GA. When she served it to me, I knew I had found the best way to serve one of my favorite vegetables. I can eat this dish until I can't move.

      An old family favorite - one of the first recipes for home microwaves in the early 80's. I suggest frosting with the cold mayonnaise/mustard mixture rather than heating before spreading. Also, you can use any type of prepared mustard - Dijon, yellow, Pommery etc

      I have been making this for years with a few differences. I add curry powder to the mayonnaise/mustard mixture. I do not warm the mixture. Spread over the top of the steamed cauliflower, top with cheese & place in the oven until cheese is melted. Absolutely delicious!

      Heating the mayo mixture for 1 minute made it separate and become a gross oily mess. I'd advise to leave the mayo mixture cold, steam the cauliflower, micro it with cheese on top, and then use the mayo mixture as just a dipping sauce.
