Cheesy Cauliflower Bake

Cauliflower is such a good healthy vegetable. This dish is definitely company worthy. For a bit of spice, mix in a few drops of hot sauce to the mixture before you pour into the baking pan. A great dish to bring to a festive gathering. Can easily be doubled for a larger crowd.

  1. Does one bake this at all? 350 for 45 mins?

    1. Thank you for catching that, I have added the temperature and bake time.

  2. There is water in the recipe. Is that added to the other ingredients. I also assume that it should read 1/4 teaspoon paprika not 14! It looks delicious. I can't wait to try it.

    1. The 1/4 cup water is used to boil the cauliflower. I will clarify that in the recipe.
      I'm sorry but it does say 1/4 teaspoon paprika, doesn't it?

    2. Betty, you must have had a secret editor, because I saw it at 14 tsp at some point. I'm with you - I put baking soda down as flour in a recent recipe.

    3. Got to love those secret editors:)

  3. not a big fan of cornflakes so will add bread crumbs instead

  4. I made this tonight, and it was wonderful! Thanks!
