    We really enjoyed this! It did taste like cauliflower though... which is fine b/c we like cauliflower! I don't agree with the description that says you'll never believe it doesn't have potatoes... definitely no potatoes, but still VERY VERY yummy! Will definitely make it again and again! - 8/24/09

    Delicious! I make mashed cauliflower all the time, but this was way better! I substituted diced ham for the bacon and served it as a main dish, and my family loved it! - 3/4/09

    Instead of using frozen cauliflower, I used a head of fresh cauliflower, cut it up into pieces, boiled it, and mashed it. I also used the Morningstar faux bacon. The casserole was delicious. My husband also really enjoyed it! It reheats well too! - 8/21/08

    Excellent! I subbed out the turkey bacon for Morningstar faux bacon (to make it vegetarian) and subbed the cream cheese for FF sour cream and it tasted like sour cream and onion potato chips! I would sooooo make this again! A huge hit at our Thanksgiving table! - 11/22/07

    This was the first time I had cauliflower and it was V ERY GOOD. I have a passion for potatoes, so I could tell the difference between this and potatoes. That's OK. Cauliflower is MUCH better for me. I had to substitute alot because I didn't have everything. I wasn't prepared. Still, GREAT - 1/2/11

    This dish fooled a few at my Christmas dinner - some who say they do not like cauliflower. I make this dish often because it tastes fabulous - just like a twiced-baked potato. I only use 3 slices of the turkey bacon, not the whole pound. I recommend this to everyone - give it a try. - 1/25/11

    Very good. I couldn't stop eating it. My husband is NOT a fan of cauliflower, so I wondered how he would feel about it. He loved it. My kids didn't even know that it wasn't potatoes. This will be a regular side in our house. - 6/14/12

    This is pretty high calorie for the amount you get, but with that said I have to tell you it is simply DELICIOUS!!! I don't mind the extra calories for one day to indulge in this dish. I didn't taste the cauliflower AT ALL! I had my kid try it (she doesn't like cauliflower) and she loved it!! - 3/16/12

    Very good. A big weakness of mine is potatoes, this will for sure make up for that! (although, you can totally tell it's cauliflower, my boys weren't so sure about it, but they did eat it) Good sub for me while they eat their potatoes, nice and easy to get some frozen cauliflower and it my way! - 2/20/13

    I loved this recipe! Used it as a "hash brown" casserole adding some eggs along with some other seasonings. It has the same consistency of hash browns if you don't mash them too much. Wonderful! - 2/13/13

    This is a great idea, think about substituting plain greek yogurt in place of the cream cheese. - 1/19/13

    Really tasty! We made this at Thanksgiving this year and everyone loved it! I highly recommend using less bacon, though - I didn't even have a whole pound, and it was too much. Delicious, though! - 11/27/12

    This was a really good recipe! I made it how the recipe appears. Next time I am going to only use a half a lb of the turkey bacon. I also think it may be even better with ham diced up in it like another post recommended. I did use reduced fat cheddar. - 11/18/12

    I hoped that when I made this my husband would have an open mind and try it. Incredibly, he not only tried it but asked me to make again this week and he's always disliked cauliflower. I too used a fresh cauliflower instead of frozen and I've used the reduced fat cheddar and light cream cheese. - 11/11/12
