  • Bring cauliflower, 1 1/4 cups milk and salt to a boil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until the cauliflower is tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup cheese and oil in a small bowl. Whisk flour and the remaining 1/4 cup milk in another small bowl until smooth; stir the mixture into the pan and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup cheese, chives, mustard and pepper. Sprinkle with the breadcrumb mixture. Broil until the top is crispy and beginning to brown, 1 to 2 minutes.

This was so easy to make and very satisfying! I too added a can of albacore tuna and it was delish! Perfect for a cold winter night. Read More

Another great recipe! Only thing I will do differently next time is add 1 serving of pasta and have it as a main course! It was very yummy! Amanda from NC Read More

This dish was fantastic. I didn't have chives on hand but substitued chopped green onion. I followed the other readers' advice and used black pepper and I also doubled up to have leftovers. Unfortunately there were none! My youngest son (a notoriously picky eater) even had seconds. In fact it was only on his second helping that he realized it was cauliflower. My husband also thought it was potatoes until my son made his discovery. My 13 year old's verdict? "Huh I guess I really like cauliflower." I will make again and again. Jenn D Seaside CA Read More

Excellent comfort food I went ahead and used the whole head of cauliflower in my 12 cast iron skillet and used a lid during the cooking process. When broiling watch it carefully to prevent burn. 2 minutes max. Turned out heavenly! Yum Pros: A great alternative to that boring steamed cauliflower Read More

This is excellent. One pan clean-up is great. I didn't feel the store bought bread crumbs were too heavy at all. I added a little extra cheese and it was not necessary. Didn't have any chives--didn't miss 'em. Definitely double the recipe if you want leftovers. Perfect amount for a family of four. Read More

Easy and great way to spice up cauliflower This is a great way to spice up cauliflower. Added some variety to plain old steam cauliflower. Also a great alternative to mac and cheese! I am a pasta lover but now that I have made this the next time I am craving mac and cheese I'll reach for this recipe instead. I was going to take a photo but we ate it all before I had a chance! Pros: Quick and easy to make Read More
