Cauliflower cheese is quintessentially British. I grew up eating it but I haven't made it in many years and thanks to an enormous cauliflower I bought last week I decided to give an old favourite recipe a try again.
2 oz butter
2 oz all purpose flour
1 tsp colemans mustard powder
1 pint milk
2 oz cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
dash of nutmeg
1/4 cup panko
Steam the cauliflower for 10 minutes.
In a large pan, melt the butter, add the flour and cook for a minute before slowly adding the milk. Once combined add in the mustard powder, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Continue stirring until the sauce comes to a boil. Reduce heat and add the cheese and stir until the cheese has melted.
Place the cauliflower into a large baking dish and pour the cheese sauce over the top. Top with the panko and some extra grated cheese and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
