Method

  1. Heat the grill to high. Fill a large saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Meanwhile, break the cauliflower into even-sized florets. Drop into the pan and boil for about 7 mins, or until very tender.
  2. Heat the cheese sauce either in the microwave on High for 1 min or in a small pan until heated through, but not boiling. Place the cheese, hazelnuts and breadcrumbs in a bowl and mix together.
  3. Drain the cauliflower and place in the bottom of a large, shallow, baking dish. Pour the warmed sauce over the cauliflower, covering it evenly, then sprinkle with the breadcrumbs. Put under the grill for 5 mins, or until the cheese is bubbling and the breadcrumbs are golden and crusty.

Good cauliflower cheese recipe to make if you are in a hurry. If you want to cut down on the fat content, you really don't need the Swiss cheese. It's still good without.

Under item 2 of Method it says add breadcrumbs to bowl with other ingredients but under item 3 it says sprinkle breadcrumbs on top. Which is it?

Really easy to make. I used chopped wallnuts instead of hazelnuts. Very tasty. Will definitely make again.
