Ham & Cauliflower Casserole

"You can get this ready in the morning and then finish it 30 minutes before dinner. I like to put in some frozen peas too for color Just put them in frozen before adding the sauce. Nice way to use up some of the left over ham"

  1. I really enjoyed this fast, easy one dish meal! However, it came out a little watery. I think it was from the mushrooms. But that's okay because it tasted great! I used soy milk, fat free sour cream, and mozzarella because I didn't have cheddar. Very tasty.
  2. Made exactly as stated, omitting the mushrooms and adding slightly more cheese. Delicious!
  3. This was Delicious! I used half Cauliflower, and half Broccolli, both fresh and blanched. I also added a little sauteed onion, and some Tobasco. It was really good
  4. This was good and I will probably make it again with a couple of changes. There was too much cauliflower and not enough ham. I would make it 50/50 or more ham than cauliflower. I would also add some color as it looks a little bland, maybe some brocolli, green/red pepper, etc. I also used canned mushrooms so did not have the watery problem, although they did not seem to add much flavor. I was out of sour cream and substituted mayo. All in all we enjoyed it.
  5. I have been looking forward to this recipe for a long time. It was very good. I did have a problem with it being watery but I think that is because I used a boneless ham and those always have a lot of water in them. Next time I may cook some of the water out of it first and then double the cheese sauce. Thanks for posting.


  1. my entire family loved this. I doubled the recipe, served it with spatzel. (I also used yogurt in place of sour cream) Everyone has asked for the recipe. Kudos


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
