Recipe Ingredients for Cauliflower Cheese

Recipe Directions for Cauliflower Cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 F.

  2. Meanwhile, rinse and trim the cauliflower, break the pieces into small florets that are bite sized. You can either boil them in water for about 10 minutes (only JUST to the point of being tender) or you can steam them, or microwave them. Any method is fine.

  3. Drain the cauliflower into a colander and then put them into a buttered 2 quart casserole dish.

  4. Now you will make the sauce. First put the butter into a medium sauce pan and melt, when it is bubbly, add the flour and mix quickly until the flour is incorporated into the butter. Then add the milk in a slow stream, stirring constantly. Continue to stir constantly and allow to thicken and come to a boil. The mix should be smooth. If it's not it means you did not stir constantly, shame on you for ignoring the sauce! Simmer the sauce for two minutes.

  5. Add about 3/4 of the cheese, the mustard, nutmeg and pepper and cook until the cheese melts (about a minute or so). Pour the entire thing over the cauliflower. No need to stir. Then, mix the rest of the cheese with the breadcrumbs and sprinkle all over the top. Here is where you could add a touch of paprika if you like.

  6. Bake for about 15 minutes or until it's golden brown and bubbling.

  7. Serve right away as either a main dish or a side. Absolutely delicious!
