Creamy Dijon Cheesy Cauliflower

"This recipe is absolutely delicious. The dijon mustard gives it just the right amount of zing without being over-powering. I love how quickly this recipe goes together and cooks. Start to finish it's about 30 minutes."

    What a great way to prepare cauliflower. And yes, you are correct, it's very creamy and cheesy. The Dijon mustard is a nice compliment to this dish. I garnished the dish with fresh parsley springs for a pretty presentation. This is a keeper and thank you so much, MaxsMom!!!

    This receipe is certainly a keeper. My husband and I enjoyed it very much. I'm not much on Cauliflower but this I could handle. I wouldn't change anything about it. You can be sure this will be on a future Buffet Table.

    I love cauliflower and I loved this! The dijon and cheese sauce was perfect. I used panko crumbs for the breadcrumbs. I also added just a little salt and pepper. Thanx for posting!

    I am often intimidated by cheese sauces, but this was foolproof. I used Cabot reduced-fat cheddar, and served it over brown rice. It's a great, indulgent vegetarian entree.

    Quick, easy, made it the day before and it was just great. Couldn't complain if I wanted to.
