I left out the bacon and used green onion sinstead of chives but otherwise followed the directions and boy was it good!! I will be making this delicious creamy dish often.

Very easy dish to prepare. Instead of half & half and butter I just used no-fat sour cream. I only fixed a single portion so I did not bother with putting in the oven. Definately not potatoes, but a tasty way to fix cauliflower. I will make this again.

What a delicious alternative to mashed potatoes. I made this last night to go with steak and mushrooms I followed the directions to the letter and the results were creamy and very tasty. My DH actually said he was extremely impressed! Thanks Richard!
