Cauliflower with Cheese Sauce

The cheese sauce makes cauliflower hard to resist...even for picky eaters! This vegetable dish is wonderful served at holidays and also for lunch along with pork sausage links, croissants and a green salad.


6 servings


1 large head cauliflower
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
minced fresh parsley


In a large saucepan, bring 1 inch of water, cauliflower and salt to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 5 to 15 minutes or until cauliflower is crisp-tender.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter; stir in flour and thyme until blended. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat; add cheese, stirring until melted.

Drain and pat cauliflower dry; place on a serving platter. Top with cheese sauce; sprinkle with paprika and parsley. Cut into wedges.
