    *Pixie*'s Note:

    Baked cauliflower in a creamy cheese sauce that doesn't use cream-of-X soup. Note: I have made this with skim milk and lowfat cheese and it works, but you have to cook the sauce longer to get it to thicken.

      Great recipe. I added one ingredient - bread crumbs sprinkled over cheese sauce and before the final 1 cup of cheese.

      Great recipe! I added a little lemon juice for some extra zing, I didn't have a whole head of cauliflower and found that I needed only about 4 tbs flour and 1c milk. Very yummy!

      Very nice recipe, not a spec left. I only used 4 tbsp. flour and it made a nice creamy sauce. I did use whole milk and 2 cups of old cheddar in the sauce as well as the extra cup of cheese on top. I liked having the veg in the oven and not fussing with cheese sauce at the last minute. I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
