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!

Please give your Mom a kiss from me. This was a wonderful, easy recipe to prepare in the microwave on a warm day. I also reduced the mayo to 1/4 c and it was still very flavorful.

Ohhhhh, this is so good. I don't usually cook in my microwave, but this is fool proof. The cauliflower was perfectly cooked, without being mushy, which is why I don't cook in the microwave. And then add the topping, yummy. I loved the mustard flavor with the cheese. I also mixed the cheese into the mayo mixture instead of putting it on top. Thank you for sharing with awesome way to serve cauliflower.

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.

Loved the simplicity. Very tasty. I added diced green onion and transferred to oven for last few mins, high temp. Cheese was bubbly and browned. Only thing I would avoid is Russian mustArd. It was all I had and it dominated the flavor. Didn't need as much mayo. Very good, thanks.
