This was so delicious I will be making again. I only used one head of cauliflower but kept the other ingredients the same. The best part about this dish was the onions. I cut them up very small caramelized them and they were for sure the ingredient that made the dish. Its very close to a baked Mac and cheese dish. Read More

There is a lot about this recipe I really liked and I will make it again with what I have learned. Next time I will cook the onions longer until they are caramelized and I will add some dimension with a touch of cayenne and mustard. I did appreciate that there was no flour needed the sauce was thick without it. Thank you Ericsonpad Read More

I made it and is a huge hit. I did not use the soup and I mixed the crackers in with the cauliflower and topped with cracker. I love it and will be making it again...... Read More
