  1. This was very enjoyable but I couldn't help to add a few things I browned some sweet onion garlic and diced jalapeno into a very small amount of butter (maybe 1/8 c or less) and tossed the 1/2 head of steamed cauliflower into in the pan then transferred it to an 8x8 and covered with - Read more ...
  2. I made this recipe the same way as VICSGARDEN did (I'll copy/paste his review). The only thing I changed about the recipe is that I mixed the bread crumbs and other seasonings together before sprinkling onto the cauliflower. From VICSGARDEN: I gave this 4 stars because I didn't change the ingredients. It's a good combination. - Read more ...
  3. I gave this 4 stars because I didn't change the ingredients. It's a good combination. I knew I'd end up with a goopy mess by mixing bread crumbs and parmesan cheese with melted butter so here's how I made it: I steamed the cauliflower instead of boiling it. Added the red pepper flakes to the - Read more ...
  4. I have a similiar recipe..But I use instead of butter I use 1 cup sour cream 1/2 crushed corn flakes 1 cup cheddar cheese half of red bell pepper and half of a orange bell pepper chopped then I mix it and top it off with Parmesan cheese and paprika...Great recipes.Both of them!
  5. First I read all the reviews. Then enbarked on this recipe journey. LOVED IT!!!

Maybe next time I ll add more bread crumbs and less butter. Also adding broccoli is an excellent idea it will give - Read more ...
  7. I liked this and will make it again but may I please make 3 suggestions? This recipe has the potential for greatness but there are some changes necessary. #1 Reduce the breadcrumbs; I agree with one of the previous reviewers~ 2/3 cup is way too much, it absorbs all of the liquid. #2 Use a - Read more ...
  8. This recipe is very good. If you would like to try a 'lite' version of this recipe, you can omit the butter. I combined this recipe with a recipe I already make. I make sure the cauliflower is well cooked and drained well, then mash it with a potato masher. Without using any butter, I - Read more ...
  9. I wasn't that impressed with this recipe. It was rather spicy from the red pepper flakes so those could definitely be cut down along with the bread crumbs. It also was on the high fat side the bottom was swimming in butter. I also ended up adding extra cheese to it because once the topping - Read more ...
  10. I made this for my husband and myself, and it was great!It was very easy and something different to serve with dinner. My husband's only comment was, maybe more cheese (but he always says that). I will scale down the red pepper, but that's just a personal preference. Thanks for posting!
