Overall, this recipie was very good. I used fresh cauliflower and strongly suggest cooking the califlower a bit before combining with the other ingredients and putting in the oven. Additionally, I used bacon bits and would strong suggest using crumbled real bacon. I think it would make all the difference in the world. A pretty easy recipie to pull together.

Not fabulous. Even after adding a couple of fresh sliced mushrooms and extra bacon there was really no saving this dish. This recipe with additions could have potential, but I don't feel it's worth the effort.

I used fresh cauliflower and steamed it first. Also used french's fried onions instead of bacon...great receipe.

This was very good! Was looking for a new recipe for cauliflower and had all the ingredients on hand. I had bacon bits, and still thought it was teriffic, but I'll try again with crumbled bacon. Took another reviewer's advice and pre-cooked the cauliflower 3 minutes in the microwave before mixing with everything else and putting in the oven, and it came out perfectly. Will make again.

This tasted amazing! I didn't have swiss cheese so I replaced it with Aged 2yr Balderson Royal Canadian Cheddar cheese. Also I took the advice and used blanched a head of cauliflower and pan fried a third pkg of bacon.

Hubby and I really enjoyed this. Super easy to throw together. Used this recipe as a jump point and used ingredients we had on hand...fresh cauliflower (steamed it a bit first), cream of asparagus soup (rather than mushroom), cheddar cheese (rather than swiss), leeks (because they needed to be used) and bread crumbs on top. Next time I'd like to actually try the swiss/mushroom combo, but the asparagus/cheddar combo was really good. I think just about any cream soup would work in this.

Great I Cooked the Cauliflower in the microwave for 2mins on high, and then sprinkled breadcrumbs over it at the end before cooking, so it had a crunchy texture on top. It has become a family favourite!

I'm not a fan of cauliflower, and this was a great way to dress it up! It actually tasted very similar to potatoes au gratin. I had to sub mozzarella for the Swiss and bacon bits for real bacon; I hope to try it sometime with the right ingredients.
