Bookmark and Share

I found this recipe on the internet.  Thank you to whom ever posted it.  I have made it several times and it is a keeper.



Cauliflower au gratin

INGREDIENTS for the béchamel:
1 stick of salt butter
2 cups of flour
6 cups of milk
salt and pepper to taste

INGREDIENTS for the gratin
3 cups of shredded cheese
5 cups of diced ham
1 cauliflower cut into small pieces

Extra cheese to use over the the top


  1. In a large pot add water with a bit of salt and cook the cauliflower for about 15 to 20 minutes
  2. In a medium size pot melt the butter then add the flour and consistently mix to create a nice doughy well blended paste
  3. Slowly add the milk and keep on incorporating it until forming a creamy sauce
  4. Preheat the oven to 375
  5. Strain the cauliflower and add it to the béchamel along with the ham and cheese and mix it all together
  6. Pour the whole thing into an oven-safe deep dish and place it in the oven for 25 minutes
  7. Change the oven temperature from 375 to high boil (or about 475) for about 5 minutes then remove from the oven, let it rest 5 minutes and serve
