I make this on nights when I want a crunchy and simple side dish. It’s one of those recipes that allows you spice to your mood. It takes about an hour, so I pour a little white wine, envision myself as today’s version of the Galloping Gourmet, and sing any tune that comes to mind. I never measure anything; the key is the consistency of the bread crumb mixture. It has to be just moist enough to stick well on the cauliflower. — Stacy Haller, 50+, Executive Director National Childhood Cancer Foundation, Rockville, MD
