Baked Cauliflower in Cheese Sauce

Baked Cauliflower in Cheese Sauce created by Baby Kato

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.

directions

  • Cut cauliflower into bite size pieces and steam until just tender.
  • While it is steaming, melt the butter and add the red pepper flakes and garlic powder (if using).
  • Add the flour and mix until smooth and thickened.
  • Mix in the milk a bit at a time stirring each time until smooth.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, over a medium heat until thick and creamy (this takes awhile).
  • Add 1 cup cheese cheese and stir until melted.
  • Remove sauce from heat and salt and pepper the sauce to taste.
  • Spread the cauliflower in a 9 x 13 pan (or casserole dish).
  • Pour the cheese sauce evenly over the cauliflower and then sprinkle with 1 cup cheese (if desired).
  • Bake at 350 F until cheese is melted.

    Great recipe! I added about a teaspoon of fresh squeezed lemon and fresh garlic to taste. I mixed in a cup of mozzerella cheese (what I had on hand) in the sauce, and a cup of mozzerella over the top right before I placed in the oven to bake. this was to melt the cheese and heat up the cauliflower. my family LOVED this dish. I will definitely prepare this again!!

    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.
