I have a hard time giving low ratings, but Bergy, you have convinced me that I need to be honest and constructive so here goes.The recipe turned out bland, but I think it's because I just used plain cream cheese. I would like to try this again, using the Rondele cream cheese with garlic and chives and use cauliflower instead of broccoli. Whew. Thanks Bergy.

This dish is like a low-fat quiche. I used goat cheese and next time I will add a bit more cheese. But its a very tasty way to get cauliflower.
