Everywhere I go, friends are substituting cauliflower for potatoes. I have to admit, that I have actually mashed cauliflower and seasoned it as you would potatoes and served it without really missing the mashed potato taste too much. Of course, with enough cheese in anything, it taste good, right? But this caught by eye and indeed, when you are cutting back on starches, this one will give you that rich deep flavor that you expect sitting down to a great dinner, without all the starch. Taken from yet, another SLM, what would I do without you?
1 cup light mayonnaise
1 medium cauliflower, broken into flowerets
1 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
Place mayo in a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Add cauliflower; seal and shake to coat.
Place breadcrumbs in a large heavy-duty plastic bag. Add half of cauliflower mixture. Seal and shake to coat. Spread in a single layer onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining cauliflower mixture and breadcrumbs.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
