This was really lacking in flavor. Not delicate, not plain, not was bland. With some garlic/onion/hot sauce this could definitely be a 5 star dish. The texture was fabulous and the ease of preparation was refreshing-no canned soups, processed cheese, etc. I used 2 tbsp of flour instead of three as the standard ratio for a roux is 1:1 butter and flour. It was perfect--if there would have been 3 then I could see the custard being extremely clumpy and thick. If I make this again, I would definitely add a lot more flavoring agents. Thanks for a no fuss--no massively processed food ingredient casserole! Though their favorite cauliflower recipe is Roasted Garlic Cauliflower from this eaters enjoyed it too, so it's in the keeper box.


I'm giving this five stars because I honestly wasn't expecting this to turn out that great but it DID! I made it exactly as written, the only change I made was to add half a chopped onion.


This recipe was just delicious and is definitely a keeper. I followed the recipe exactly and my whole family loved it, even the toddlers! Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
