Cauliflower served in a simple white sauce with a hint of nutmeg which highlights the cauliflower. Cheese lovers have the option of adding some of there favorite cheese to the sauce. Try melting some Dutch cheese such as Edam or Gouda cheese into your sauce. Some other suggestions are Fontina, Gruyere, Cheddar or your favorite mild cheese from your part of the world. Enjoy!
