WOW! This was amazing. I made exactly as written and this turned out perfectly. It comes out of the oven gorgeous and would make a lovely presentation for company. Be sure to spread the mayo mix around the sides and as much of the bottom of the cauliflower as you can. It was basically like frosting a cake but not. Super fun recipe and one that will not disappoint! Read More

Well this recipe amazed me! I wish I could give it more stars. I didn’t change a thing! The presentation was unique, the cauliflower was tender, and the topping transformed what can be a mild vegetable into a star dish of the meal. We gobbled this up and can’t wait to make it again! Read More

I didn't have any fresh garlic, so I used Garlic powder. I omitted the chives, because again I didn't have any. This is by far the best cauliflower dish I have had. It's so creamy, tender, and easy to make. This is a keeper for sure! Read More
