Cauliflower Cheese Recipe


With the family visiting regularly over the Christmas period I've had to cater for all tastes. I've cooked quite a few dishes that I wouldn't usually make for myself including this creamy cauliflower cheese which was a huge success - to the extent I made a second two days later for everyone upon request and a third shortly after!


Cauliflower Cheese



Ingredients


1 Cauliflower
50g butter
50g plain flour
450ml milk
130g cheese, grated
4tbsp bread crumbs
Parmesan


Method
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees
  • Cut the cauliflower into pieces and cook in a saucepan of boiling water for around 8 minutes. Drain and set to one side.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan over a low heat and mix in the flour to create a roux
  • Gradually add the milk while stirring continuously to create your sauce
  • Once thickened, add the majority of the cheese and stir until it is all melted and combined, ensuring there are no lumps
  • Place the cauliflower in an ovenproof dish approximately 12" by 15" in size and pour the sauce over the top
  • Sprinkle on the remaining cheese, breadcrumbs and grate on some Parmesan
  • Cook for around 25 minutes until golden in colour and bubbling
  • Scoff!
It goes well with roast beef, Yorkshire puddings, potatoes and veg on a Sunday.

  29. We make cauliflower cheese regularly & sometimes add a little carrot & some new potatoes to make it into a meal in itself.

  30. I've been cooking salmon and other fish, lots of sweet potatoes (very sustaining in cold weather), and our favourite pudding of blackberries from the freezer, sliced apple on top, spicy sponge on top.
