    This was really, really good, and a great change of pace for a delicious veggie. The whole family enjoyed it, from 40 to 2 :). I agree that it needs a reasonably heavy hand with the seasoning; since there is raw egg in the mix I didn't want to taste after I had added my "dashes" of salt and pepper, and at the table we all wound up adding more. I'm sure this depends on the size of your cauliflower head. Also, I didn't have challah so I just put a slice of wheat bread through the food processor and used that. Thanks for posting; I will definitely be making this again.

    This was pretty good but a bit bland. I think because we had a very large cauliflower, the other ingredients needed to be increased. Also next time I would rinse off the cauliflower in cold water to prevent the egg from cooking when I mixed it together. I cooked this in a 9x9 pan and it filled it!

    This was fantastic! I didn't have challah, and I didn't exactly know what "shredded" meant, so I just used whole wheat breadcrumbs. I also used jack cheese instead of cheddar as that was what I had on hand. Everyone in my family loved it! My only complaint is that it didn't "puff" much. I thought it would rise like bread and it didn't, but the taste more than made up for that. Thanks!
