1 whole cauliflower, washed and trimmed
1 stick (1 cup) butter
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs (Italian or plain)
4 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Steam cauliflower until tender, but not overcooked (so it doesn't fall apart), about 15 minutes or so.
Meanwhile, melt butter over a medium heat in a small saucepan. Stir in bread crumbs and cook, stirring, about a minute. Add eggs, salt and pepper and heat through over low heat.
Transfer cauliflower to a bowl or platter. Place large spoonfuls of the breadcrumb mixture all over the cauliflower, patting down with your hands, until the whole thing is 'frosted'. Scoop out servings with a large spoon. Serves 4.
