    I loved this recipe. I made if for Thanksgiving and every time I see cauliflower is on sale, I instantly think of recipe!

    This looked very interesting so I had to try. 3 changes, but nothing much. I did use Monterey Jack as you suggested. Velveeta, unless it is mixed with rotel and served with Doritos ... I don't touch it. Sorry Velveeta fans. The cheese was great. I did puree almost smooth, but did leave a little texture. I used a whole wheat cracker blend. I'm not a saltine fan, they worked very well. Then I added a little fresh fine chopped parsley.. Ingredients were on spot. I put mine in individual gratin dishes and then topped with a sprinkle of cheese and baked in the oven to brown the top slightly. I was a great dish. It is in my book. I just enjoyed the monterey jack and the hint of fresh parsley,

    I didn't whip mine until it was smooth, but left it looking like little tiny pieces of cauliflower. I used whole wheat crackers and left out the salt, and arranged more Velveeta decoratively on top. This was tasty, but felt like it should have had something more I can't put my finger on. Next time I'll try the colby-jack, and add in some jalapenos or bacon.

    Very unique.... in a good way. It's nice and creamy. I cut some fat by only using 1/4 cup of butter and I used reduced-fat sour cream. I chose to use the colby-jack cheese over the Velveeta. I think the colby-jack cheese is the way to go for this recipe. I'll make this again. Thanx!


<p>My husband & I built our dream home after our children were raised.We didn't hire a contractor, we pounded every nail and board and shingle on it.I have lots of stories to tell about that adventure. My passion is cooking, my grandchildren and living each day like it were my last. I love to drive the big rigs. I lived all over the world for a time and collected dolls and cookbooks. I write poetry. My other passions are the outdoors, country living, the sunrises and sunsets,to give to others more than I receive as it says in the Bible. As I get older I am less judgemental.I hope I have helped someone each and every day. Every day is an adventure! <br /><br />Event Participation! <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-SueL-FirstPlace.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/beartag_1_1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting /> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/adopted_1_1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting /> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting /></p>
