I have been making this for years, mostly over the holidays as a side for beef tenderloin. It is delicious. My husband, who scrunched his nose when I first mentioned cauliflower, begs for it. Be sure that the boiled cauliflower is well drained and dry when you combine with other ingredients so the final product will not be watery.
Would be great for holiday meal. Made to recipe except steamed cauliflower about 10min rather than boiling & added about 1/4c gruyere to finish up a wedge. Excellent. Served with CL's grilled balsamic steak and some pan-roasted grape tomatoes.
This was very good, but it seemed to need more seasoning, so I added dried garlic and a couple of shots of hot pepper sauce. I toasted some blanched almonds and added them to the crumb toping giving the dish some crunch.
This was so yummy that I don't know what else to say. Hubby doesn't like cauliflower, but had two helpings, then had the leftovers for breakfast. There really isn't any cauliflower taste to it, just this really great creamy, cheesy taste. I made half the recipe. I cooked the cauliflower in my microwave on sensor-cook and it was perfect. I didn't use the parsley or thyme as I was out, and used Pecorino-Romano instead of Reggiano.
This is an awesome cauliflower recipe. I didn't have leeks, so I used red onion. It was still yummy. It makes a ton, which is great for leftovers.
I made this exactly as the recipe stated and I found this to be just OK. The caulifower was fine, but the sauce lacked flavor. I do not think I would make this again. Or, maybe it would be better with a stronger cheese as someone suggested. I could not take the beautiful parmasean cheese that the recipe called for.
Wow this was delicious! Unfortunately I didn't look at how many servings it made so I made way too much for my 2 person household... But it was fantastic. Took quite awhile to prepare though, but it would be great for a potluck or holiday meal.
Really enjoyed this recipe, although I did alter it, to ensure flavor and richness. I halved the recipe. I microwaved the cauliflower. I used 1 1/4 C milk (less than half of the original recipe amount, since other reviewers commented upon the recipe being too watery). I used 3 oz Gruyere cheese for a stronger flavor and in the cauliflower mixture I added fresh thyme, oregano & parsley. I used Panko crumbs mixed with fresh oregano, parsley & thyme, melted butter and garlic. The cauliflower had a wonderful rich flavor. Will definitely make again. Served with grilled steaks and salad of arugula & green zebra tomatoes w/olive oil & balsamic vingegar -- big glass or two of syrah wine.
