This cauliflower au gratin recipe is going to be your favorite cauliflower recipe ever. It’s cheesy, a little crispy, super creamy, and pretty easy to make. It really has it all!
Cauliflower florets Salt Butter Flour Whole milk Ground black pepper White cheddar cheese Gruyere cheese Bread crumbs
Cook the cauliflower florets in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain and set the cooked florets aside.
Melt the butter then whisk in the flour. Pour in the milk and whisk until it starts to thicken. Remove the pot from the stove and whisk in half of the cheese.
Pour half of the cheese sauce into a baking dish, then add the cooked cauliflower florets. Top with the rest of the cheese sauce, then sprinkle the breadcrumbs and remaining cheese over the gratin. Drizzle the top with butter.
Bake the cauliflower gratin for 25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the cheese sauce is bubbling around the edges.
Ever since that first Thanksgiving cauliflower au gratin, my family has been asking for this side dish nonstop.
I am happy to make this cauliflower side dish all the time. It is easy, healthy and big enough to feed the whole family.
