OK, just cause Dan says we should be watchful and helpful, here is the Recipe for Possum Surprise from the original post MANY years ago.
POSSUM SURPRISE. ***
2 heads cauliflower
1 bunch broccoli
1 whole purple onion(we just use half a good sized one)
10 strips (or a pound) if you like bacon, we use a whole pound most of the time
1 cup shredded cheese (we use chedddar and white mixture, but really any kind will work). Mayonnaise to bind.
Cut the Cauliflower FLORETS ONLY from the bunch,and then cut them into small pieces. Cut the broccoli the same way and put both into a mixing bowl along with the chopped purple onion.
NEXT, add the crisply fried bacon and the shredded cheese (we use between 1 and 1 1/2 cups), amd then add enough mayonnaise or miracle whip to bind it all together.
It really doesn't take as much as you would think. The Mayonnaise of course isn't absorbed, just kinda helps stick everything together.
***WE Recommend using bagged Cauliflower and Broccoli Florets instead of the whole bunch. You don't actually use the "Stems, just the tops".
AND we have no idea why it's called Possum Surprise. Just someone in the family started calling it that and it stuck.
