    Turned out really tasty. Like many have said, this is pkenty of cheese. My head of cauliflower was only 1 1/2 lbs, so I halved everything but it still came out a little runny. Next time I will use full cauliflower but still 1/2 the cheese. Overall two thumbs up!,

    Not a bad recipe to play around with. Found it a little bland, personally, despite throwing in a little cayenne pepper. Cheese sauce was fantastic though, so we'll definitely circle back around to this one again!

    The cheese was waaaay over powering and the cauliflower got lost. I will make this again will only make half of the cheese

    Too much cheese per cauliflower but overall delish

    Way too much cheese; double the cauliflower or cut the cheese in half, but it was delicious. I added nutritional yeast to mine as well.

    This wasn't fully what I was hoping time I might try cooking the cauliflower less, if at all (?) before putting it in the oven; I think a lot more texture would be nice. I added in spinach and sausage, too, which I think were good additions.
