From Colorado Favorites.

This is what the intro states. "A trip to Ouray is like stepping to Switzerland: Bavarian store fronts line the streets and outrageous peaks surround the entire town. This recipe turns cauliflower into a delicate, Swiss-cheese souffle".

The recipe does not give the number of servings, so I guessed at that.
