Crunchy cauliflower cheese
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
- 1 large cauliflower (about 1kg/2lb 4oz), trimmed
- 300g tub cheese sauce
- 100g Swiss cheese such as gruyère or emmental, grated
- 25g toasted hazelnut , crushed
- 50g fresh breadcrumb
- STEP 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.
- STEP 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.
- STEP 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.
