Made a batch. Mom and I both loved it. But had alot of leftovers which we wanted. 2 days later found LISA B7 recipe for Potato Spinach Cassrole but didn't want to be troubled with making the mashed potatoes so I used the leftover Pots and Cauliflower omitting the butter in LISA B7 recipe. Thank you both reposted as Potato Spinach Casserole with Cauliflower. Reposted trying to ensure credit to kdelegan are LISA B7 is given.

I had a 2 lb bag of potatoes that needed to be used and also a head of cauliflower I did not want to go bad. So after looking around the internet for a mashed potato and cauliflower recipe I went back to my trusted All Recipes site and here it is! Chose to make this with out Christmas Eve dinner of ham and fixings and it was a hit! Will make sure to prepare this with other dinners whether for a holiday or not.

AWESOME!! Perfect for a feast, when you need the oven for other dishes. I used 5 lbs potatoes, skins on, and omitted the cauliflower. I used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Hearty and delicious!!! Thanks :)

Fluffy little clouds of goodness. Perfect mashers for those lazy days using the slow cooker. I will be making these again. I like the idea that the sour cream is not over powering. Today's slow cookers cook at a higher temp. This was done in a little over 4 hours.

This was good and a great way of adding extra veggies into a meal. I had mine along side some corn and stuffing. It was the perfect accompaniment and it was easy to make. Thanks!

Great way to get some extra veggies in your meal. I used red skin potatoes and didn't peel them.
