  • Combine sour cream, Cheddar cheese, corn flakes, bell peppers, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in the cauliflower, and transfer to the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese and paprika over the top of the dish.

  • Bake uncovered until heated through, 30 to 35 minutes.

Very nice. Colourful and cheesy. Everyone at our house liked this. Although the instructions mention adding paprika to the top of the casserole I added it but I'm not really sure that it's necessary. Make sure to buy a big cauliflower because there is a lot of other stuff in the casserole. This could be assembled ahead of time and refrigerated if that is more convenient. Thanks! Read More

I tried to stick to the recipe as closely as possible my first time making it. I will remake it, but I will be making some changes next time. My review for the recipe as it is written is middle of the road. My 7 year old son and I both liked it, but my mother did not care for it and my 5 year old daughter thought that being required to eat it was a fate worse than death. I did not like red peppers in this recipe because I found the sweetness off putting. The biggest thing about this recipe that I consider a fail is the corn flakes. Mixing them with sour cream and baking them in the casserole rendered them unrecognizable blobs of mush. What I liked best about this recipe is that it is a vegetable casserole where the veggies are the star of the show. I felt like 4 out of 5 vegetable casserole recipes were calling for a can of condensed soup, and I am all set with that. Next time, I'm going to begin by using green peppers and half a minced onion and sauteeing them in bacon grease before adding them to the casserole. I will also roast the cauliflower florets instead of steaming them. I will use 8oz of sour cream and 8oz of greek yogurt mixed with the sharp cheddar, and I will skip the corn flakes. Instead of just the parm on the top, I will mix the parm with the corn flakes and some crumbled bacon. Read More

My husband and I loved it. A few substitutions to make it more Weight Watcher friendly: I used fat free sour cream 1/2 cup green pepper and 1/2 cup red pepper (for more color and more vegetables) and just a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. Instead of salt I substituted Trader Joe's Salt-Free 21 Seasoning Salute. Delicious. I will be preparing this again and again. Read More

This was a very good vegetable dish. Very flavorful! I did substitute frozen (thawed) cauliflower for the convenience of it. Read More

This was a really good side dish that I tried this evening that my family enjoyed. I didn't have everything on hand to make this, so I had to omit and substitute a few items. It came out very tasty with my substitutions. I didn't have corn flakes, so I omitted the bread aspect. I didn't have sour cream, but I did have plain yogurt, that I used in place of the sour cream. I also only had a red bell pepper. I sautéed and added 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion and 3 large minced cloves of garlic to the 1/2 cup of chopped red bell pepper in olive oil with 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper for several minutes and then added these sautéed vegetables to the cauliflower and then mixed in the cheddar cheese and yogurt. I didn't add salt since the cheeses have so much salt in them already. I will make this again. Read More

My boyfriend doesn't like cauliflower but he said he'd eat it if I put cheese on it. I followed this recipe exactly and it was absolutely delicious. I felt really skeptical for a moment before I tossed the cauliflower in with the other ingredients -- I felt that it would be too little to coat everything. However it was the perfect amount. Each bite was cheesy and delicious. As for the corn flakes I figured that I would crush them in a plastic baggie. Little did I know in advance that a snack-sized bag filled with corn flakes crunches down to exactly half a cup! Now you do and you can save yourself a bit of time measuring!:) Read More

I would go a 4.5 on this one. Made it as is but omitted the red pepper(didn't have) & corn flakes(don't like in casseroles). To leftovers I mixed in some leftover broccoli a handful more cheese & a small single serve container of chive cream cheese-YUM! Thank you for the inspiration!! Read More

My family was wild over this recipe! I used a large head of caluflower and doulbed the cheese sour cream and corn flakes. I also added a chili and lime seasoning mix (witch contains several spices ) for more flavor. It was fantastic. I will defiinatley be making this again. Read More
