I've been making this recipe for years and my tip for this recipe is to add the parmesan to the mustard/mayo mixture before you spread it on the cauliflower. Less waste!

Some REALLY good advice... Steam for 10 minutes and check to see if it's done enough. I steamed for 30 minutes like the directions say, and it turned into mush. The next time I made this, I tried 10 minutes and it was perfect! I was out of Parmesan cheese so I covered with chedder cheese. When steamed properly, this is definately a very good veggy.

This is a good recipe to use up things you have on hand. In my case it was a head of cauliflower! ;) I agree with other reviewers that 30 minutes is too long to steam the cauliflower. I steamed mine in an electric steamer for 15 minutes and let it drain well. The sauce is great but you will need to adjust it to your own personal tastes -- are you a mayonaise or mustard person. If you have a preference you might want to increase your favorite. In our case we used 2 T mayo to 1 T mustard. I also added a sprinkle of grated cheddar cheese to the top because I was afraid it would dry out too much. Next time I will make a lot more sauce. My family liked it and wanted to taste more of it on the cauliflower. I am going to also try to thicken the sauce some so it will stick to the cauliflower instead of have to be drizzled over the top. Good "different" recipe.
