  • Place cauliflower into a 9x12-inch microwave-safe casserole dish or large bowl with water. Cover with microwave-safe plastic wrap and microwave on high power until half-steamed, about 5 minutes. Remove and pour out excess water but do not drain in a colander.

  • Sprinkle cauliflower with mozzarella cheese, bacon, garlic, paprika, black pepper, salt, and red pepper flakes; toss to evenly distribute. Stir in mushroom soup until cauliflower is coated; spread mixture evenly in the dish. Top with French-fried onions, followed by Parmesan cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden and bubbly, about 45 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Cook's Notes:

You can use 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder instead of fresh garlic, if preferred.

If you really think the top is getting too done, cover it loosely with foil but remove the foil the last 15 minutes so the top can get crispy.
