After seeing a similar recipe on a web site that drove me crazy with ads and the irrelevant history of anyone who'd ever touched a spatula popping up, I thought I'd return to my favorite recipe ...

Will definitely be making this again. We loved it!!

Didn't have nutmeg, so didn't use that. But I used everything else and it was delicious. I've never eaten cauliflower and could never stand the smell of it. This recipe is great!

Followed as written but used regular butter. Texture was good, flavour also good. Would definitely make again.

Great for the Keto diet! Even my kids liked it. I think next time I will try mixing cheddar with provolone.

It isn't quite MacNCheese, but it is good. I made the recipe just as it is written and we all liked it a lot. Not sure I'd call it a main dish, but it would make a good, hearty side.

removed salt to make it lower sodium and used garlic and herb s and it turned out great !

Delicious! My family had multiple helpings.

This was easy and delicious, and I definitely will make this again!
