Ingredients
Method
 
  • 1/2 head of cauliflower
  • 2 tbsps butter
  • 4 tbsps flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Stilton cheese or Gorgonzola (or any other sharp cheese)
  • 2 tbsp bread crumbs
Preheat oven at 350 F.

Steam cauliflower until slightly tender (it continues cooking in the oven). While it's steaming, heat milk with garlic and the bay leaf in a small pot. In another pot create a roux using butter and flour. Slowly incorporate heated milk while whisking to avoid lumps. Once all the milk is added, continue cooking over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes. Add the two cheeses and continue cooking until melted. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cut the cauliflower into florets and then cut each on in half. Place them in an oven-proof casserole dish and pour sauce over cauliflower until half way up. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and cook in oven until bubbly and golden.

Baked cauliflower can be made in many ways depending on your taste. You can add different ingredients such as bacon bits or other cheeses to give it a kick. Great as a side dish with chicken breast, pork tenderloin or fish.
