Cauliflower Au Gratin

Guess you could say that I am on a cauliflower kick but how could you not when only 1/2 cup of cooked cauliflower is only 14 calories! Here is my spin on a favorite dish , potatoes au gratin! I kid you not that it tastes just as well! I think most people don’t prefere cauliflower because of the bland taste but I am positive with this recipe It could change your mind! The buffalo Cauliflower was a big hit and this one is right up there!

    Had to cook a slightly similar version for my wife all the time when she was pregnant. Used to serve if whith any white fish. Classic comfort food.
