Great potato and cauliflower side dish. Goes especially well with a pork meal.

This was the best Potato and Cauliflower Cassorole ever! I did add a couple of tweaks - first I was out of cauliflower so I substituted broccoli. And I only had potato flakes so instead I used some onion. And rather than use a casserole dish I cooked on top of the stove in a fry pan!!! Wait - just kidding kinda making fun of a couple other reviews of this recipe! I made this exactly as is (except I honestly never actually measure ingredients) and it came out GREAT.

Definitely needs something. I think the calories with the buter/cream/cheese is a waste because it is so bland I even added parm cheese and red pepper flakes and still bland. I will stick with my cauliflower oliveoil parm cheese and bread crumbs tossed in a bad then melt cheddar cheese at the end... easier and no cream

Excellent recipe I didn't have heavy cream so I used milk. Also I didn't have swiss cheese so I used 1/2 cup velveta and 1/2 cup romano and it turned out wonderful. Thank you for another way to serve old favorites.

I have to say my 16 year old was so mad when I told him that it was cauliflower..."MOM I HATE CAULIFLOWER!" Then he tasted it (making an ugly face the whole time) and tasted it again and then again...when it was all said and done he probably ate at least 1/3 of the casserole...too funny! It was really good. I will make this again and again. Oh yeah I boiled the potatoes and steamed the cauliflower at the same time (over the potatoes in a basket).

I make this casserole all the time! Although I use milk instead of cream for the bechamel sauce it tastes truly delicious -a real comfort food! I add a grating of nutmeg and dry bread crumbs on top in addition to the cheese and pass it under the broiler for a few minutes for a little crispiness... My husband adores it.

This is one of the best potato casseroles I've tried. I have not changed anything but this weekend when I make it for another potluck I will add precooked chicken. Thank you so much. I've made this three times in three weeks for different occassions. I get more compliments on this dish.

Good base recipe. I also added dry mustard and nutmeg. Substituted milk for the cream and also used 2 cups of sharp cheddar instead of swiss. Came out great.

The recipe "as is" is too bland for me. I omitted swiss cheese. I used parmesan in the flour/cream mixture as well as adding fresh garlic and rosemary. I used cheddar cheese on top. It is delicious!

My family really loved this recipe. I used frozen cauliflower three potatoes and fat free half and half to cut down on the fat. Delish and thanks!

Was looking for something different but yet hearty and good - this was it. I was surprised at how tasty this recipe was - the combination sounded a bit odd - but it was excellent! Many requests from kids/husb to fix again. (I used half cream and the other half milk - prolly would be just fine with all milk too.)
