Ingredients

How to make it

  • Pull the leaves off your cauliflower and cut off the stem.
  • Put it on a rack in a big stockpot with about an inch of water in the bottom and bring to a boil. (If you're like me and don't have a rack, just leave enough stem for it to balance on and not quite sit directly in the water.)
  • Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for approximately 20 minutes or until you smell it.
  • Meanwhile, mix 1 c. of mayo with 3 T of dijon mustard and 2-3 tsp. garlic powder. Mix well and then add the cheddar.
  • Remove the cooked cauliflower head to a baking dish, and spread on the mayo mix.
  • Broil long enough to melt the cheese and just barely begin browning parts of it.
  • Take out and use a knife to remove any remaining stem. It will be very soft and easy to do.
  • Then use a spoon to break the cauliflower up and mix the sauce in well. (If you've got any stem left, you'll find it during this step because it won't break up easily.)
  • Serve!

    You KNOW what a visual person I am! That's why I like all those pictures of my grandchildren!! Keep that camera ready, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you're coming up with next - cooking at home isn't so bad after all, is it?? Ok, so you hate the clean up - pretty soon, Maggie and Gus will be old enough to do that! Well, it may be a few more years, but nonetheless, something to hang on to...love, mom

    mrtnzangel8 - Too funny! I must confess that I got that tip from the person who gave me the recipe, but it works! When I could smell cauliflower in the steam, it was ready.

    Krumkake/mama - I'm definitely experimenting with more recipes again, so yes, I'll have to post more of them here. I gotta start remembering to take pictures like you always do!

    Imagine my DElight when I logged in tonight and saw my grandchildrens smiling faces on my "My Stuff" page!!! That made my day...and I was also very glad to hear they all liked the cauliflower dish (even you - wow!)...thanks for posting it so I can try it - it does sound tasty, and you know how much dad and I already love cauliflower...I'll try this next week. Now that you're cooking at home more, will I be seeing more posts from you?!?!? Love you, mom
