I make mine in a huge casserole dish, like this:

32 ounce package frozen cauliflower *
8 ounce chive and onion flavor cream cheese, softened
8 ounce cheddar cheese, shredded
4 green onions (scallions), chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 pack bacon, chopped and fried until crisp
Paprika, optional
chicken breasts, cooked in bacon fat, diced
couple of heaping large spoonfuls of sour cream
dash of heavy cream

Boil the cauliflower until soft, about 8-10 minutes; drain very well and break up florets a bit with a spoon (it's also very good if the cauliflower is still a little chunky). Put in a greased large baking pan or casserole dish. Mix in all ingredients except leave some cheese for the topping. Dust top with paprika, if desired. Sprinkle with cheddar. Bake at 350ΒΊ for 20-40 minutes, until browned and bubbly.

Or, microwave, loosely covered, for about 40 minutes on 50% power, turning dish after 20 minutes. (YUCK, I say bake it!!)
