recipe! Click HERE to see more!
1.5 sticks butter
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
8 oz Velveeta
1/2 c parmesan cheese
1 t sugar
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 t onion powder
1/4 t pepper
1/2 t dried dill
1-2 c half and half
Whisk all in sauce pan until smooth over medium heat.
Add more half and half if needed to make the sauce
the proper consistency.
Pour over 3 c cubed ham
and 1 head of cauliflower, cut in 1 " cubes and parboiled.
Bake in greased casserole dish, topped with Martha Stewart's
pate brisee for one crust. Bake 350 for 45 minutes.


  1. That looks yummy, I love cauliflower any way it is made.
    I will try this.
    Well, I gotta go eat breakfast before my friend and I go to our scrapbooking class.


    P.S. I am wearing the necklace you sent me. I just love it.

  2. That looks so good, what a beautiful crust! Love your header!
    Where do you find such pretty pictures?

  3. Yes, the best dishes is not a recipe for years, but the moment of inspiration, such as art on the same. :)

  4. Hmmmmmm, we are not cauliflower lovers here at The Glen (in a salad every here and there) but I am QUITE sure that if YOU made this Betsy...it is delicious!

  5. It truly sounds and looks delicious; I would be licking the pot too.;)))
    I might even be able to make this, as the recipe has some baking in it.;)))

  6. Betsy: Thank you so much for vsting my blog! Yes, I do love TJ Maxx! Ironically, my son works there part time as he is a freshman in college! So he can tell me when good stuff comes in! I am going to make this pot pie, it sounds delish!

    You are so pretty and you remind me so much of a girlfriend of mine. They say everyone has a twin somewhere!

    Have a great day!

  7. Beef and Noodles last night were fantastic, Betsy!!! A real hit. I'm so glad one of the triplets likes this dish, too. I know you've said before they don't usually eat what the rest of you eat. I can't do this one though, cauliflower and all, because Hubby is the only one who would eat it.

  8. Looks wonderful! I'm not one that can make stuff up...I almost always follow a recipe exactly how it is written. Wish I felt a little more confident in the kitchen.

  9. Lou Cinda ~ you are so lucky to have a 'spy' at TJ Maxx! ha-ha!

  10. Kayren ~ sounds like you aren't the only one that doesn't like cauliflower here! ha-ha! Yes, it's Alex that has become willing to try most anything! I wish his 2 brothers would catch on!

  11. YUM! I'll be right over. Yes, some of my thrown together stuff has turned out to be a delightful surprise. (And then there are those less delightful surprises, sigh...)

  12. Oh Yum! I'm so glad you just posted the white sauce recipe, too!

    I think I'm going to have to be sure to check your blog each morning before I go to the grocery store to plan my meals!

    You're amazing, Betsy!

    Love, Amy

  13. Mmmmm, sounds good. Please come cook for me!

  14. Looks great. So do you I have to say, and you have four sons?!! My picture is courtesy of my daughter's photoshop software, it's OK no-one will need to see me in the flesh!

  15. I just gotta try this out!!
    I just read your comment over at Nana Trish's blog. I just want you
    to know I am praying for you!
    In Him,

  16. I love cauliflour but have so far failed to interest the rest of the family in it. Maybe this will do the trick....it sure looks delicious. Necessity is the mother of awesome new recipes!

  17. Actually, Betsy, when I try cooking without a recipe, it's usually an unmitigated disaster :( I think you are very talented in the cooking arena! This looks great. Unfortunately, my husband does not like cauliflower. However, I'm saving the rec. for next time he's gone on business.

  18. Ohhh! I love all of the ingredients, so how could you go wrong? Sounds yummy! I'll have to try it!... Debbie

  19. It looks yummy. I do love to put things together for the first time. It's nice when everyone loves it. Sometimes it's hard for me to remember what I did exactly.

  20. Simple and good. Enjoyed by many. Even food can show us what is the very best of life!

  21. Reasons to be cheerful ~ hi! Thanks for visiting! Yes, four sons! :)

  22. Looka and sounds good! I love cauliflower, and ham, so I know I'd love this dish.

  23. oh this looks great! thanks for sharing it on savory sundays! (don't forget to add the button)
