"Another fantastic recipe that was scarfed by our fellowship. I used regular sour cream, cheese & added seasoned salt for more flavor. Also increased the amount for a crockpot. If I hadn't disclosed there was cauliflower in it, my hubby might've eaten it, too."

"My family and I LOVED this recipe. I didn't tell the kids or my husband that there was cauliflower in it until after we all ate. They were shocked! This is a keeper for sure!!!! I love that I can get some wholesome veggies in their diet, always a great thing!"

"We loved, loved, loved these potatoes! I included them in a meal I made for my elderly dad and then my hubby and I enjoyed the rest of the recipe. We could not taste the cauliflower at all, though it would have been fine if we had. The only thing I changed was to use 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese instead of the cheddar, because I had no cheddar on hand. Oh, and I didn't have red potatoes, so ended up using russets (which I did peel) and that worked out fine, although I am sure the red potatoes would work better in this recipe. All in all, a keeper!"
