A dear friend shared this recipe one year when we both had an abundance of cauliflower from our gardens. My husband and I enjoy this so much that I make it for breakfast, lunch and dinner! —Tracy Watson, Hobson, Montana

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 22, 2013

This recipe is terrific. I ended up cutting it in half as it's only me. I would definitely make this for a party or dinner with friends. It's in the recipe box now. I did not make any substitutions. I just didn't make the crust.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 17, 2012

My husband and I are on the low carb diet so I made this without the crust. I also used half sharp cheddar and half swiss instead of the 6oz. cheddar and it was wonderful! I will make this again and again.
