    Ozzy's Note:

    A wonderful alternative to mashed potato (great for carb cutters) but equally as great as a side dish with any meal, I tend to add a little grated cheese sometimes too! Enjoy!

      This is a great recipe! It's delicious as-is, though I've taken to making it with fat-free plain Greek yogurt instead of the mayo. The yogurt is a delcious and creamy sour-cream substitute with loads of protein. I'm always thrilled when I find something uber-healthy AND delicious that my kids will eat. I make this using frozen cauliflower to save time. Thank you for posting!

      I enjoyed this very much and thought it was a great stand in for mashed potatoes. However, my hubby wouldn't touch it. He isn't exactly what I would call a "foodie" though. The only thing I might do differently would be to decrease the mayo just a little to obtain a thicker consistency.

      Wow! What a fabulous, simple and absolutely delish recipe! I don't think I'll ever go back to mashed potatoes again! I may add a bit more garlic next time, only because I'm a huge fan, but made as directed, I seriously could have eaten the entire dish. Thanks so much for posting this!
