For me, personally, I could easily make a warm bowl of this casserole my entire dinner, but you can serve it alongside your favorite meat and a garden salad.

If you wanted to beef-up the casserole (err… chicken-it-up?) you could shred some rotisserie chicken and add it to the dish prior to baking.

When I was a kid my mom would always steam a pan of cauliflower and then sprinkle a bunch of cheddar cheese on top. She and I would eat a huge plate of that stuff and it’s what made me grow to love cauliflower when I was younger.

This loaded cauliflower casserole recipe reminds me of the cheesy plates of cauliflower that my mom would whip-up, but WAY BETTER.

    We had company for dinner and my friends’ husband said it was the best cauliflower he ever had. Everyone loved it!

  3. So good! I added rotisserie chicken and jalapeño instead of chives after the first time I made it and both the original recipe and altered recipe were delicious. Almost too good because now my husband makes me make it for him all of the time ;)
