I really liked these, but my DH did not! He's not a cauliflower fan and saw me making this so the recipe had strikes against it from the start! I served them with baked cube steak and really liked the combined taste. Try them...but you may need to make them in secret if you family has an aversion to cauliflower.

Try these Add-ins for different flavors:
