Cauliflower for Cauliflower Haters

My dads favorite and since its been a long week for him I figured I would make him happy. It is a great side dish for everything. Easy to fool anyone that does not like cauliflower.


1 head of Cauliflower Cut off stem and into pieces

1 Cup Shredded Cheese ( Go with something aged and hard that you can freshly grate like a prima dona or romano )

2 TBS butter

3 Tbs Salt plus a little to taste

2 tsp Paprika

2 tsb Garlic Powder

Boil cauliflower in a big pot of water with all the salt. Boil for about 20 minutes until it is very soft. Then, drain it well and return to pot. Mash with a potato masher or large spoon. Next, lower flame to medium and add all the cheese and spices. Stir well and cook for an additional 5 minutes until all cheese is melted and mixture is creamy and thick. Serve hot and enjoy.
