Wow Tony, this sounds awesome.  Does it get crisp?  Another outside-the-box use for cauliflower.  I am making cauli-mash for Thanksgiving.  Perhaps I will save some cauliflower and use it to make some of this as well.

Hi, Mark! :)

Baking at 450 degrees causes the top to crisp and be moist below.
Ovens vary. So at about 20 minutes, keep a close eye on it.
When it gets a nice brown color, it's ready.

If you leave it in a bit longer, the top will get browner and crispier.
But be careful to not allow it to burn!... Burnt cauliflower is gross! :P
