I’ll bake anything….with cheese

Cauliflower Cheese Bake

1 head cauliflower cut into florets

1/2 c corn kernels

1/2 c frozen peas

1 lg onion sliced

2 c milk heated

3 tbsp butter + 1 tbsp

3 tbsp flour

1 c parmesan cheese + 1/3 cup

1/2 c shredded mozzarella

2 cloves garlic minced

1 1/2 tsp mustard powder

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp nutmeg (if you can use freshly grated it is far superior than pre-ground)

salt & pepper

1/3 c breadcrumbs

Oven 375F

Blanche cauliflower, set aside in bowl with peas and corn (defrosted if frozen).  Saute onions, on medium heat, in 1 tbsp butter until golden brown about 15 mins, add to bowl.

In a saucepan melt 3 tbsp butter, add flour and stir until incorporated over medium heat, cook 3 mins until golden in color.  Add the heated milk and whisk together, cook over a low heat until mixture starts to thicken.  Add garlic, spices and cheeses (minus 1/3 c parmesan), big pinch salt and pepper and mix again.

Grease a baking dish (8 x 8 or similar) spread vegetable mixture in evenly then pour cheese sauce over. Sprinkle top of bake liberally with the breadcrumbs and the last of the parmesan (1/3 c). Bake 35 mins until golden brown and bubbling.


molten hot bubbling cheesy goodness, I served this with a simple side salad.
