Meet the Cook: My mother gets the credit for this delicious dish, which is a mainstay at our house. It can be an appetizer or side dish...and is wonderful served with turkey, roast beef and ham. My husband, our teenage son, Daniel, and I live on a country acreage. I enjoy gardening and collecting cookbooks. -Sandra Furman-Krajewski, Amsterdam, New York

"I expected the taste of the parmesan to stand out more than it did. We thought this was pretty good. But we still like the version we get in a local restaurant better."

"Delicious! I used 2 whole eggs, in place of 4 yolks, and had a fine result. My husband OF 40+ years said this tasted just like what his mom used to make!"

"I love this recipe because even my turn-up-their-noses family members will eat cauliflower this way. Sometimes I add cayenne for those who like even their vegetables to be spicy hot."
