Thank you, I've been looking everywhere for a perfect cauliflower recipe and with a few changes this one came close: added 1T. curry powder to milk mixture to enhance flavor, baked it rather than broil. Furthermore, I made recipe even simpler by placing cauliflower UNCOOKED in a casserole dish, pouring the milk mixture over it and covering with tin foil. I baked it covered with foil for 35 minutes at 350 degrees F. Then removed the foil, spread the cracker/butter mixture over the top and baked for 30 more minutes. Voila!


This is my great-grandmothers recipe. She made it during the depression. We love this recipe very much, but in the last few years have modified it a tad. When we are making a quick batch we use a buttery cracker such as Ritz instead of saltines and butter. Cuts the time and some of the fat. Hope you enjoy!


Did make some changes: used 1/2 c. mayo and 1/2 c. sour cream; added garlic powder; and used half bread crumbs and half cracker crumbs. Have made this recipe with both broccoli and cauliflower, enjoyed it both ways. Very good!
