Cauliflower Gratin

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Cookie16

From "French Women Don't Get Fat" by Mireille Guiliano. The original recipe suggest any of these cheeses - gruyere, swiss, jarlsberg, comte, parmesan or pecorino. Also, the original recipe did not call for baking, just broiling. I found that the liquid didn't set enough with just broiling so I've added the short bake. Everyone in my family likes this, even the kids.

I love Mireille's recipes, and this is one of my favorites! So easy to make, so delicious, that even people who tell me that they don't like cauliflower end up taking a second helping!
