Thank you, I've been looking everywhere for a perfect cauliflower recipe and with a few changes this one came close: added 1T. curry powder to milk mixture to enhance flavor, baked it rather than broil. Furthermore, I made recipe even simpler by placing cauliflower UNCOOKED in a casserole dish, pouring the milk mixture over it and covering with tin foil. I baked it covered with foil for 35 minutes at 350 degrees F. Then removed the foil, spread the cracker/butter mixture over the top and baked for 30 more minutes. Voila!
Too much mayonnaise and I love mayonnaise. Will try again with 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 cup sour cream, adding some garlic powder, and using regular milk.
This is my great-grandmothers recipe. She made it during the depression. We love this recipe very much, but in the last few years have modified it a tad. When we are making a quick batch we use a buttery cracker such as Ritz instead of saltines and butter. Cuts the time and some of the fat. Hope you enjoy!
Did make some changes: used 1/2 c. mayo and 1/2 c. sour cream; added garlic powder; and used half bread crumbs and half cracker crumbs. Have made this recipe with both broccoli and cauliflower, enjoyed it both ways. Very good!
This is a keeper. I used frozen cauliflower, made the cheese sauce in the microwave, poured it over and because of the carbs, omitted the saltines. I baked it for 60 minutes at 350 along with my other dish of chicken. It was perfect. My son loved it. Next time I will double the recipie.
I agree with another reviewer that the mayonaise taste was surprisingly strong, but my husband RAVED about the flavor of the sauce, so I can't fault it even though mayo isn't my favorite thing. I used cauliflower, broccoli, and a coarsely chopped and grilled sweet onion. I omitted the breadcrumb topping as it just didn't seem to need it. Oh, I also baked mine at 350 for one hour, as my casserole dish wasn't broiler safe. It was just fine.
I tried this on company last night and everyone loved it! My family was fighting over the leftovers today for their lunches!
I only wish it could be cut down so that it would be good for just the 4 of us. I will most assuredly make this again and again.
Cauliflower is my boyfriend's favorite vegetable, especially when it's paired with cheese. This was delicious! I cut the mayo in half to reduce the calories a little bit. The only change we would make next time is add in garlic and use bread crumbs instead of saltines.
