    Delicious! We thought the toasted stuffing mix and walnuts was the best part. I'm going to make this again with a traditional cheese sauce.

    So, I attended Tonya’s Christmas party as she commented below, and this dish is amazing. I am excited about the prospect of feeding my family veggies and they are excited about it.

    I made this for our Christmas party at work. I had to make some changes I couldn't find any frozen cauliflower, so I used fresh and I used Better than Bouillon because that is what I had. I am not crazy about nuts, so I left them off. The casserole got lots of compliments and several people asked for the recipe.

    This was very good. I omitted the walnuts. My dog loved it!

    I have included this veggie side for holiday dinners for several years. It's always asked for by the fam and friends who come for dinner.

    Very disappointed. I followed the directions exactly and no one and I mean no one in the family liked it. Even the dog who loves veggies in any way shape or form spit it out.

    Yummy! Not a fan of walnuts, but without them it still is delicious!
