Really tasty and easy. I threw in some pasta pieces and courgette to turn it into a full meal, and put breadcrumbs on top mixed with the cheese, for a nice crust. Great recipe. - 15 Aug 2012


Very yummy indeed! I didn't use the nutmeg, and added a bit of parmesan. But it turned out very well. And the bf had seconds!! - 10 Jul 2012


This is just perfect. I keep the whole cauliflower in one piece and 'pat' the cheese onto the cauliflower. Sometimes I also add some bacon! Yum! - 06 Feb 2015
