My mother served this cheesy cauliflower on Thanksgiving and Christmas for as long as I can remember. I've embellished the recipe over the years, but I've kept the family tradition around for 47+ years of marriage. When I visit my children and their families, this dish is a must for them as well! You can easily double the recipe for larger groups. —Charlene Chambers, Ormond Beach, Florida
