Cauliflower Cheese

This is my very easy take on cauliflower cheese making the most of pre-prepared supermarket ingredients.

Easy Cauliflower Cheese

  • Servings: 4-6
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

  • Frozen cauliflower florets (or prepare from fresh) equivalent of one cauliflower
  • Frozen chopped onions (or prepare from fresh) one handful
  • Lazy garlic (or prepare from fresh) one teaspoon
  • 250mls double (heavy) cream
  • Pre-grated mature cheddar cheese (or grate yourself) 3/4 of a bag
  • English mustard (or use French if preferred for a milder flavour) one teaspoon
  • White pepper ground one teaspoon
  • 1-2 oz unsalted butter
  1. Put on the oven at 190 degrees.
  2. Put cauliflower in the microwave to cook. Add some water to a microwavable pot and seal with lid or cling film.
  3. Cook as directed or around 7-9 minutes. Check for firmness. Cook as you like either firm or sloppy or somewhere in between.
  4. Meanwhile melt butter in a saucepan. Add the onions and garlic and brown.
  5. Take off the heat and add the double cream.
  6. Add the pepper and mustard and stir.
  7. Add the grated cheese and stir (leave some cheese over).
  8. Drain the cooked cauliflower and put in a Pyrex bowl or similar oven-proof dish. Pour over the cheese sauce.
  9. Sprinkle on the remaining grated cheese and put in the oven for 20 minutes.
  10. Remove and serve immediately.

Goes well with sliced meats, especially ham.
