Cauliflower Au Gratin

"A very simple recipe for cauliflower that everyone always loves (even those who say they 'hate' cauliflower change their minds after trying this)."
Cauliflower Au Gratin created by Parsley
Ready In:



  • Lightly butter a 13 X 9" pyrex baking dish and put in cauliflower.
  • Season lightly with white pepper and sprinkle all the cheeses over.
  • Beat the eggs into the half and half (you can also use 1 1/2 cups milk, 2 eggs and 1 tblsp cornflour as a sub). Pour over cauliflower-cheese mixture and top with buttered breadcrumbs.
  • Bake in a 375F oven until lightly golden-brown.
  • Allow to cool slightly before serving.
  • This is also super good at room temperature or cold.
  • (Try it for breakfast!) Reheats well, so can be made in advance- just pour a couple of tablespoonfuls of cream (or milk) over for moisture.

    I used my Vitamix and combined the milk, eggs, cornstarch and all of the cheeses. I ran on #8 about thirty seconds, until all blended. I then poured over the cauliflower and topped with shredded cheese instead of breadcrumbs and baked for thirty minutes. I didn't have any separation and it turned out great.

    I'm going to try this today but am going to make it keto by using full cream or a mix with some sour cream, and skipping the bread crumbs. I might add some diced smoked pork as well for a fuller meal.

    I used a small cauliflower, so halved the recipe. Like someone else, I tried the 40 minutes cooking time, but it was too much. The cheese stayed as a separate layer, and there was absolutely no salt, but we still enjoyed it.

    We made this on Friday and loved it so much we made it on Sunday, very good. We did use the milk option as that is what we had.

    Made using milk and cornstarch. Half a recipe was just about right as a side dish for 3 of us with some left over. Recipe didn't say how long to cook so I used the cook time in the heading. It was way too long and the custard broke down. I knew it was cooking too long but I wanted it ready with the rest of the meal. I don't think it affected flavor, just looked a little funky. Loved the crunchy topping. Will probably make again.
