Happy Sunday evening! I hope you had a fun weekend. Mine was pretty boring, but I tried something new and I’m sharing it with you. A couple of days ago I saw cauliflower at the store. I haven’t cooked with it before, so I thought it would be interesting to try it. Saturday was the perfect day to experiment so I made this cheesy cauliflower casserole for dinner.
I think it ended up pretty good. It’s easy to prepare and it doesn’t take much time. If you are looking for a way to cook cauliflower, give this a try.
Bacon would be a great addition here. I didn’t have any, but if you do, add some. I’m sure it will make this even better.
- 1 head cauliflower cut into florets
- 40-50g unsalted butter
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 cup hot milk
- 2 cups shredded yellow cheese+more to sprinkle on top (or use a different type)
- black pepper
In a large pot, boil water with a little bit of salt. Add the cauliflower and cook for 5-6 minutes. Drain the water and let it cool.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and saute for several minutes, until it softens. Add the flour and cook for a minute or two stirring constantly. Pour the hot milk into the mixture and whisk constantly until it thickens. Add the cheese and stir until it melts. Remove from heat and season with salt and black pepper.
Preheat the oven to 180C degrees.
Transfer the cauliflower to your baking pan. Pour the sauce over and cover with the additional cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a nice crust is formed.
