What to do with …..
A head of cauliflower, close to being around the bend? Cauliflower cheese of course! The cauliflower is white when I started so I get points on the color challenge….)
Cut the cauliflower up into florets and cook in 1/2 milk and 1/2 water until al dente. Meanwhile, grease a pan, turn the oven on to 375 and brown some panko or fresh bread crumbs in a dry skillet. Make a roux with 2 Tbsp of butter and 3 Tbsp of flour by browning the butter and whisking in the flour until cooked. It will be kind of dry and will smell nutty and sweet. Add a cup of milk, and a cup of shredded cheese and mix with drained cauliflower until cheese is evenly distributed. Into the oven for half an hour and you can give it 7 minutes or so under the broiler if it doesn’t get brown enough while baking or if you want it to be extra bubbly!
Excellent for leftovers with some crumbled bacon!
