To dress up cauliflower, Mom used a delightful mixture of a cheesy sauce, bright red and green pepper pieces and crushed cornflakes. We enjoyed this casserole so much that leftovers were rare. -Linda McGinty, Parma, Ohio

"Very Good. Left out the peppers because I didn't have them but will use them when I do.

I liked the fact that you can prepare ahead and refrigerate till needed."

"I usually just make a cheesy white sauce to pour over steamed cauliflower, but I think this will be my new go-to recipe. I didn't add the peppers because my kids won't eat them, but it was still an incredibly tasty dish without them. I will definitely make again."

"Excellent! Was never a Cauliflower fan until we tried this recipe. Did not have Cornflakes, so used Italian problem. It's a keeper!"

"This was a real nice side dish. I had no cornflakes so I used panko breadcrumbs. I also added a little bit of garlic.

I like the fact that its not loaded with a heavy sauce. I am going to try combining Cauliflower and Broccoli * I made it up ahead of time and simply reheated in the oven. Covered then uncovered for a few minutes during the final warm up time.

"I also used bread crumbs in place of cornflakes and half of the sour cream was replaced with Ranch dressing. My entire family loved this and the color combination is beautiful."

"Great recipe - even my teenager loved it! I used fresh bread crumbs instead of cornflakes (didn't have cornflakes) and it was perfect. I'll definitely make this one again!"
