Way Too Easy French Onion Cauliflower

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by omeomy #2

We're not big cauliflower eaters, but sometimes on chilly winter evenings this hits the spot. This recipe is flexible; lite sour cream is fine. No nutmeg is fine. Sometimes we add a little milk to make a thinner sauce an on occasion paprika is sprinkled over it prior to baking.

I am a big fan of cauliflower and this was such a great tasting and different recipe. I used fat free sour cream, and also used florets mainly for ease of serving when cooked. A definite keeper.
