    **Tinkerbell**'s Note:

    Posted for ZWT-6, this recipe comes from the Usborne Children's World Cookbook that gramma gave my son when he was first learning to cook. Any strong-flavored cheese will work in this recipe, such as cheddar, but if you are looking for an authentic Dutch flavor, choose either Edam or Gouda. The servings, cook & prep time are estimates.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Remove the leaves from the cauliflower, rinse it well and then cut out the core. Cut the rest into four pieces.
    2. 2
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and then add the cauliflower. Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until tender. Drain and put it into an ovenproof casserole dish.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan, over low heat.
    4. 4
      Add the flour and stir with a wooden spoon to make a smooth paste.
    5. 5
      Cook the mixture gently for a minute, then take the pan off the heat.
    6. 6
      Stir in the milk, a little at a time.
    7. 7
      Return the pan to the heat and let it cook on low for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    8. 8
      Stir most of the grated cheese into the saucepan to melt. Season it with pinches of the salt, pepper and nutmeg.
    9. 9
      When the sauce has melted, pour over the cauliflower and sprinkle the reserved cheese on top.
    10. 10
      Place under the broiler for a few minutes and until the top starts to bubble and brown.

      My family really liked this. A simple and easy recipe to make. Very flavorful. Used Cheddar cheese for the sauce. Thank You. Made for ZWT6 Family Picks. No-Nonsense Nibblers.

      Very good! This one is a keeper. I used more (1/4 tsp each) black pepper and nutmeg, and was very happy with the result. I used Gouda as suggested in the recipe description. I think the Gouda is a better choice than Cheddar to pair with the nutmeg. After removing the dish from the broiler, I sprinkled a tiny bit more black pepper and nutmeg on top for color. Made for ZWT 6 and the Whine & Cheese Gang.

      Totally delicious - this is an old favourite and easy to make. I also added some cooked diced bacon to the sauce - so yummy - made for ZWT 6.
