I’ve made these cauliflower mashed potato dishes many times but always have to be very careful when I make them so they don’t turn out too goopy. For great success the cauliflower must be cooked until very tender, must be dried out as much as possible, and a very limited amount of milk added, if any. What I immediately noticed in this recipe was the addition of the potato flakes, and I thought that was ingenious! The submitter adds just enough to ensure that the cauliflower is a mashed potato consistency and it was a very easy and effective solution! You know, one of those, “Why didn’t I think of that?” kind of things. I made it easy on myself and just microwaved the cauliflower and dried it very thoroughly before I continued with the rest of its preparation. Since I was serving this with gravy I didn’t use the Cheddar cheese. Obviously this only pretends to be mashed potatoes, but it does a fine job, particularly with the “secret ingredient” of potato flakes. Suggestion: For best flavor use butter, not margarine.
