Jump to Recipe

Growing up this side dish was a staple at every holiday meal. My mom loved making it as it was a little different from her normal “meat and potatoes” dinners.

The curry in this dish melds so nicely with the flavors of the sauce and is not overpowering. The garlic buttered bread crumbs absolutely complete the dish!

Makes a beautiful and flavorful side to any meal. We particularly love it at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Cut the cauliflower into medium size flowerets.

Steam cauliflower for 8-10 minutes. You want it to be a little firm and not overcooked as it will get mushy when baked.

While the cauliflower cooks combine the soup, mayo, cheese and curry. Salt and pepper to taste.

Stir the sauce until mixed well

Add cooked cauliflower and stir to combine. Spoon into prepared baking dish.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a skillet, melt butter and saute minced garlic 30 seconds, then add cubed bread and mix until cubes are cooked with the garlic butter

Top cauliflower with garlic buttered bread cubes and bake 25-30 minutes.
