The flavor of the beer overpowered everything else and was off-putting. I might try it again without the beer, though I'm not sure what liquid to substitute for it.

This is a tasty comfort food that is easy for non-cauliflower lovers to eat, and it is a good use for old bread. On the other hand, it is not as flavorful as I expected; perhaps more spices would bump it up a little. But still, it's worth making again when I need a filling side dish with a bit of veggie nutrition tucked inside.

I used light butter and cheese and 4 egg whites and one whole egg. A self-proclaimed cauliflower hater was the one who polished it off!

I had a 2# chunk of ham and was debating on chunking it up into a pasta dish when this recipe in the new tasteofhome edition caught my eye. I made this cauliflower dish exactly as presented, using my favorite Oroweat Dill Rye bread and warmed the sliced ham with apricot jam atop. Fresh green beans compleated the meal. This is a rich dish so I can make it a main dish with a big salad too!
