    This might just be my favorite thing to eat in the world. It is mandatory at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter and also a great entree for Meatless Mondays.

    My family isn’t generally fond of cauliflower, so I can’t wait to try this recipe and see what they think, since the flavors should be a big hit!  Look forward to the roasted flavor of the cauliflower underneath the cheesiness and crisp bread crumbs.  Yum!
