For my second dish with cauliflower I thought that I would go with the classic cauliflower gratin. I don’t think you can really go wrong with smothering a vegetable in becamel sauce, covering it with cheese and baking it until golden brown on top. It is really easy and nice and tasty. I saw a few recipes that called for the addition of bits of ham or topping it with breadcrumbs. Both of these additions sound good and I will have to try them.
- 1 head cauliflower (cut into florets)
- 1 serving bechamel sauce
- 1 1/2 cups cheese (shredded)
- Boil the cauliflower until just tender, about 6-8 minutes.
- Drain the cauliflower and place in a baking dish.
- Pour the bechamel sauce over the cauliflower and top with the cheese.
- Bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven until golden brown on top.

Good rendition of this casserole. I too love cauliflower and especially accompanied with cheese!
I think cauliflower tastes it’s best ike this. My mum used to make this for us. It is such good comfort food!
Kevin, this looks like something I would absolutely love! Cheese and cauliflower are one of my favorite combinations! Mmmmm…love that golden crust on the top!
This looks so good to me right now! With the addition of a little ham, it could easily be a one dish meal.
wow….this looks soooooo good!!!!
Just out of curiosity….Do you know where I can purchase good quality foods online? I am now trying to order from online stores only because of various reasons…….can you help me with any suggestions??????
There is only one place, out of all that I have tried that really stood out for true quailty, and that is Celebrityfoods.
If you can help me grow my list of quality services or stores, where I can buy my food, I would greatly appreciate it.
I like this one with some sliced canned water chestnuts tossed in for some crunch
