This is absolutely delicious and I can't thank you enough Larry for posting it. We use Inglehoffer original Stone Ground Mustard and I think it helped make the dish.

This is yummy—I cut the caulifllower into bite-size pieces and stirred the sauce into the pieces. Baked in a dish and everyone ate it up! Thanks!

For those who don't realize all the Nutrition Facts are listed next to the recipe. I guess because this is low carbs it is listed here because saturated fat is 7 g & sodium is 296.5mg anytime cheese is an ingredient we are going to see high fats and sodium. Any meal is healthier when you replace carbs with good veggies.
