The creamy cauliflower au gratin recipe below is sure to be the favorite around the dinner table. It is both creamy and cheesy and is a wonderful side dish that just screams comfort! Cauliflower gives this dish a nice hearty texture, and the cheese sauce adds decadence. Finally, a golden topping of Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs adds a crunchy texture. This is the perfect dish to bring to your next potluck.
You first make a cheese sauce in a large pot. Begin by melting your butter and whisking in flour and milk. Next, add creamy Monterey Jack cheese along with seasonings. I like to precook the cauliflower right in the cheese sauce on the stove. Once the cauliflower starts to become tender, add it to a casserole dish, top with Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs and bake until it turns a beautiful golden brown. There you have it! Creamy, cheesy and delicious cauliflower au gratin!
