  • 1 cauliflower
  • For the sauce
  • A big knob of butter
  • Approx. 2oz plain flour
  • Approx. 500ml milk
  • Approx. 200g cheese
  • Half a tsp of English Mustard, i use Colman's
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • For the topping
  • Cheese
  • Breadcrumbs


    1. Section the cauliflower and put it into a roomy pot of boiling water, and add a little bit of salt. Boil for 15-20 minutes or until tender. While the cauliflower is boiling, put a big knob of butter into a medium-sized saucepan, and let it melt. Add in the flour, a bit at a time, stirring it while doing so. When you've made a paste, start to add the milk, again, bit by bit. Stir continously, until the sauce has thickened, and can cover the back of a spoon. At this point, you can add the cheese. Mix until the cheese has melted into the sauce, and add the mustard. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    2. Once the cauliflower has boiled, drain it. Put it into a casserole dish, and cover it with the cheese sauce. Top it all with cheese and then breadcrumbs, and grill it for a few minutes.
