This is a variation on one of our cold winter favorites. Definitely comfort food! My daughter, a 16 year old vegetarian, considers "cauliflower cheese" the ne plus ultra of all meals. Hope you submitted it to the Cauliflower contest!

Antonia....Your comfort is my comfort...thanks so much.

I made it for dinner tonight at my partner's insistance as this is one of the few vegetables I can get him to eat - since to quote him " This recipe is a great vehicle for butter and cheese" !

Comfort food, you say? Yes, I could get VERY comfortable with this! Looks so delish. ;o)

You're right this isn't a low fat or cholestrol free dish, nor for the faint of heart... but after all you only live once, therefore even a bite is better in this case than no bite at all !
Thanks for your thoughts.

I love fontina with cauliflower, and can only imagine the triple cream and parm additions! Thanks for this recipe. Sounds like a great potluck dish, too!

This puts poutine to shame in the richness department. I'm from Wisconsin and I wouldn't dare to eat this if I wasn't in a monitored ICU bed. Maybe a bite with a big salad on the side.

I hope you got my prior response as I don't see it posted here...but it was to confirm this is not a low cal dish, but you do only live once!
