Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

LOOKS really good. If these are too bland just add your favorite seasonings!! That's what I will do.

Tried this recipe? What did you think?

For a shortcut, I used frozen cauliflower rice, thawed dried using paper towels.

Reading the other comments, I wonder if I cooked the same recipe. Mine came out tasty, full of flavor and not bland at all. The only thing I would do differently next time is to cook them in less oil than suggested. They can almost be cooked in a Teflon pan with little to no oil. I plan to cook them again tonight. A great side dish with a different way to use cauliflower.

Waste of time and energy!! Oh, what I could have done with that cheese and beautiful head of cauliflower!! Skip is very time for clean-up.

I can't wait to try this. Will it work with the cauliflower I froze from our garden this past summer?

Yes, you can absolutely use cauliflower from the freezer. Just make sure you thaw it out ans squeeze it gently with a paper towel to remove any water. Enjoy!

Taste was OK. Not worth the hassle, mess, splatters, and clean up.

What size head, a pound?

Hey! You should use a medium to large head of cauliflower. You can weigh it at the grocery store if you'd like.
