  • Preparation and cooking time
    • Total time
  • Easy
  • Serves 3
Creamy, Light, Ideal served with sausages for a quick home made dinner


  • Potatoes
  • 1 cauliflower
  • 1/4 onion (diced)
  • Butter or margarine
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 450ml milk
  • Grated cheddar cheese


  • STEP 1
    Put some small (or cut-up) potatoes in a large pan and start to cook.
  • STEP 2
    After five minutes add a cut up cauliflower (and/or broccoli)
  • STEP 3
    To make the cheese sauce:
  • STEP 4
    Fry quarter of an onion in some butter or margarine, add another lump of margarine and when melted add a generous tablespoon of plain flour and mix it in.
  • STEP 5
    Add a small amount of milk and mix, add some more and mix again (it's really easy with a balloon whisk!) - you should end up using about 450ml of milk and as it gets hot it will thicken up (keep stirring as it does). Then add a big handful of grated cheddar cheese to make it a cheese sauce
  • STEP 6
    Drain the potatoes and cauliflower (and/or broccoli) and put in an ovenproof dish. Pour over the cheese sauce, sprinkle cheese over the top and bake for 15-20 minutes at 180C/Gas 4.
