    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
