I've been using this recipe for years with great success. I have a rule for myself that I always follow new recipes exactly. Then I make adjustments if necessary. It really isn't right to submit a critical review if you change the recipe. For those who said the casserole was too thin or watery - don't use "fat free" ingredients, and if the peppers weren't diced by hand, i.e. put into a chopper, the outcome will be too thin. And if the mixture seems too dry, add a little more sour cream, I know this takes time, but the finished dish is worth it. Lastly, if you don't like the ingredients or if you don't have them on hand, then don't make it.

I liked it, but it seemed dry. Next time I will increase the sour cream. And the cauliflower was a little too firm for my taste. Next time I will cook it longer - soft but not mushy.

Great Recipe! It is always a hit at potlucks. Instead of boiling the cauliflower, I bake the florets on a cookie sheet with parchment paper for 25 minutes at 350. This will keep the recipe from becoming too watery and runny as well as keeping the sauce all over the cauliflower.

Even my veggie-hating hubby will eat some of this delicious cauliflower dish! We have six grown kids, four kids-in-law,

Very good. I didn't add the peppers. I did not have cornflakes, so I followed the suggestion from another viewer and substituted bread crumbs. Great way to make cauliflower. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

I thought this was very bland and didn't mix well.

I didnt have the same success with this recipe that others have reported. Only thing i didn't have were the cornflakes, otherwise followed the recipe as written. For my tatse it was bland. The mixed ingredients seemed to settle in the bottom as a pool of liquid. Maybe didn't drain the cauliflower long enough, or too much water to cook initially? Overall, not impressed enough to tweak it and dry again.

This recipe was very tasty. I did substitute the cornflakes with pork skins for low carb. Will definitely make again. I also added a little more cheese.

I love this recipe! Great way to try something new with a vegetable that doesn't always get the respect it deserves! The only substitution I made was to use fresh soft breadcrumbs instead of the cornflakes. This casserole is cheesy and delicious and easy to put together. My new way to eat cauliflower! Will definitely make again!Volunteer Field Editor
