From the picture it looks good, but then when I see it is made with cauliflower, then I don't know. I have seen recipes made with cauliflower like pizza crust and making it like mashed potatoes. I wonder how it would taste. Does it taste like cauliflower? I love the taste of cauliflower, but when I want cauliflower. I know this is a good substitute for bread, but want it to be close to grilled cheese than the over powering taste of cauliflower. I will give it a try.

I made this a while ago and it was really good. It give you a chance to make grilled cheese and tomato soup again
