DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Bring a medium sized pot of salted water to boil. While water is heating, wash and cut cauliflower into small or medium pieces. If using frozen cauliflower, skip this step.
  • Once water is boiling, carefully add cauliflower. When water has returned to boil, turn down and simmer - uncovered - for approximately 8 minutes (or until cauliflower is about half cooked).
  • While cauliflower is simmering, use a fork or whisk to mix mayonnaise and sour cream in a bowl. Sprinkle with garlic salt to taste. If too thick, add a small amount of milk. You want this to be about as thick as pancake batter.
  • Once cauliflower is cooked to half-way, strain and allow to sit for a few minutes to "dry out". Once rested, place cauliflower in oven-proof baking dish (glass or metal), sprinkle with a touch of salt and pepper, and cover with mayonnaise/sour cream sauce.
  • Cover with shredded cheese. Place in oven and bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • Remove from oven and place French Fried onions on top. If you don't have French Fried onions, try crushed corn flakes or a mixture of bread crumbs and/or cracker crumbs. Return to oven and bake long enough to crisp and brown onions or other crunchy toppings (about 5 to 7 minutes). Watch this carefully so the onions or other topping doesn't burn.
  • Serve immediately but be careful! It's really hot and will catch little ones unaware!
