Cauliflower Cheese


This reminds me of my childhood & cold days! Isn’t it funny what different things remind you of. Cauliflower Cheese can be had as a side dish or as part of the main affair with crispy jacket potatoes (my personal favourite)

    • 1 Medium Cauliflower
    • 2 oz Butter
    • 2 oz All-Purpose Flour
    • Pinch of Salt
    • 460 ml Milk
    • 50 g Cheddar Cheese – grated (plus a little extra for sprinkling on top)
    • Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Pre heat the oven to 400°F/200°C/Gas Mark 6

Remove the green outer leaves from the cauliflower and steam whole over a pan of boiling water for 10 minutes. Remove the cauliflower from the heat and leave to cool

Place the butter and flour into a large saucepan. Over a low heat stir the butter and flour until the butter has melted and the flour is incorporated. Add the salt and continue stirring for 2 minutes

Turn the heat up to medium and add the milk in one go and whisk furiously until all a smooth sauce is formed. Continue stirring until the sauce is thickened and glossy (about 5 minutes) If the sauce is very thick add a little more milk, the sauce should be thick but still runny. Add the grated cheese and stir until melted. Remove from the heat

Break the cauliflower florets from the thick, central stalk taking care not to break it into tiny pieces. Place the florets in a baking dish large enough to hold all the florets in one layer

Pour the thickened cheeee sauce over the cauliflower ensuring all the florets are covered. Sprinkle with grated cheese and a good twist of black pepper

Bake in the hot oven until the sauce is bubbling and golden brown on the top, approx 30 minutes
