Mashed Cauliflower: they never know they are eating cauliflower. brillant idea, and tastes great too. I actually had to make it with brie because I didn't have any other cheese on hand, but it still tasted great. I will make it again with chedder though too.
This was really, really good, and a great change of pace for a delicious veggie. The whole family enjoyed it, from 40 to 2 :). I agree that it needs a reasonably heavy hand with the seasoning; since there is raw egg in the mix I didn't want to taste after I had added my "dashes" of salt and pepper, and at the table we all wound up adding more. I'm sure this depends on the size of your cauliflower head. Also, I didn't have challah so I just put a slice of wheat bread through the food processor and used that. Thanks for posting; I will definitely be making this again.
This was pretty good but a bit bland. I think because we had a very large cauliflower, the other ingredients needed to be increased. Also next time I would rinse off the cauliflower in cold water to prevent the egg from cooking when I mixed it together. I cooked this in a 9x9 pan and it filled it!
