This is a simple but delicious way to serve cauliflower. American cheese can easily be substituted for Cheddar if you would rather eat American cheese.

This is now one of my favourite side dishes. I made a few alterations as a few others had suggested s it needed more flavour. I sauteed some onion and garlic and mixed it in with the cauliflower/sour cream mixture. I added a couple tablespoons of ranch dressing I think it may have made a difference... I would suggest making a bit more of the bread crumb topping it was my favourite by far. This is definately a treat and tastes just as good eaten as leftovers. Read More

This recipe definitely needs something more. It's very bland. Cauliflower blanched with butter and salt tastes better than this recipe did to me. Next time I would omit the sour cream add butter and salt and pepper. Read More

Very good recipe! My husband and I ate this as a main course for two nights with some fruit or salad as a side dish. I added a little more sour cream and cheese to the recipe. What also worked well for me is the following: In a large bowl add the sour cream cheese some worcestershire sauce some ground mustard pepper and powdered onion. Mix it together and then add the cooked cauliflower...fold gently until it's well coated and place in the greased pan. Then place some sliced tomatoes over the top. Sprinkle buttered breadcrumbs over that and dust lightly with paprika...then bake. It's like a good mac and cheese but healthier! I really liked the taste and texture! Read More

As noted before this caulifower recipe is tasty but a bit bland. I made a few changes - I cut the amount of sour cream to 1 - 1 1/4 cup used a cheddar/jack cheese combination and added lots of minced garlic (6 cloves) sauteed in a small amount of olive oil. Terrific! Read More

This is a yummy recipe. After reading the comments of some cooks who found it a little bland I perked it up a bit with the addition of some Dijon mustard; that worked. Read More

This is such a tasty way to make cauliflower! My mom and grams used to make cauliflower with onions oil and breadcrumbs then fried it all together then baked it for about half hour to blend and toast breadcrumbs. But I must say I much prefer cauliflower this way now!!! Thanks so much for this delicious recipe. Very easy to make too. I used light sour cream and I didn't think the taste was compromised. This tasted even BETTER the next day as the sauce thickened up. I think this would be nice also if you wanted to add a couple of more veggies to it. All in all this is definitely a keeper! Thanks for this great recipe Naomi! Mmm-mm!!! Read More

This is a very simple yet tasty recipe! My family enjoyed it a lot. I did find however that the ratio of cauliflower to sour cream/cheese was a bit off...there was a bit too much cauliflower. I guess it's healthier that way but not quite as tasty. It also needed a dash of salt as the casserole came out just a bit bland. Other than that this is a great recipe that I'd make again as even the picky eaters enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing! Read More

We really enjoyed it but I recommend one head of cauliflower for the amount of sour cream and cheese suggested. I would double the sour cream and cheese if doing two heads. Otherwise I think that it wouldn't be as creamy and would come out a bit dry. Read More
