I made this for last weekend and had so many compliments. They asked for the recipe so I was glad to share it with them. It was very tasty. I am going to make it again for a supper we have this Thursday night.

Thanks again,

I recently adapted a recipe from Cook's Illustrated for this, omitting the flour and the breadcrumb topping. My husband actually ATE this. Their recipe calls for parmesan cheese, and the tiniest pinch of cayenne. Also, it calls for shallots (at least, I think it does... my memory is not working well) instead of onions: La, de, da!
Anyway... I was thinking of using crumbled bacon as a replacement for the breadcrumb topping, or some combination of pork rinds (which my husband considers disgusting) and a slice of low carb bread or ry-vita cracker.

When I made this I added some Almond Accents to the top for crunch. I used the bacon cheddar flavored ones.. So yummy.

I just spent a half an hour looking for this recipe LOL. I used to make it all the time and couldn't find it in my recipe book. Well guess where it's going right now LOL.

Love it!

Does this have a cauliflower taste? I love cauliflower but my partner doesn't. We make fauxtatoes and a cauliflower-based Rice-A-Roni knock-off (would that be Caul-A-Roni?), but obviously neither has a cauliflower taste.

Oh well, no responses. For anyone curious, yes it does have a definite cauliflower taste. I loved it, but my partner didn't.

The flavour of this is awesome! I also added crumbled bacon too. However, mine was really watery; maybe because I used par-boiled fresh cauliflower? I would maybe backup on the cream too. Terrific recipe!

Do you get a thick sauce with this - I've tried making something similar before but get a watery sauce

Made this last night with a head of fresh cauliflower, approximated the other ingredients. No bacon. It was quite good. Good side dish for ham.

Ooooo this sounds really good. I will have to try this soon.

Made this tonight for dinner and my whole family loved it! I used fresh cauliflower and left out the bacon. I also cooked it for about an hour total until the top was a little golden. The sauce is runny on this, but it was still great. It's a great addition to any meal. Delicious! :)

Samasnier...I'd be curious to hear about your califlower (rice a roni) dish. :) Tracy - Thanks for posting this recipe..can't wait to try it!
