Tender, sweet, serving-sized florets of cauliflower smothered with a blanket of rich, creamy cheese!

  • 1 head cauliflower cut up into large florets, cooked until tender
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt
  • =Cheese Sauce:
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk, whole or 2%
  • 1/2 tsp. table salt
  • 1/8 tsp. white pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. whole grain mustard
  • 1½ cups (6oz) Sargento® Shredded Double Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 slices Sargento® Sliced Swiss Cheese, torn into pieces
  • 2 Tbsp. Sargento® Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. extra-hot horseradish
  • paprika for garnish
  1. Gently boil cauliflowers pieces in salted water for 6-10 minutes, depending on size, until just tender. Drain; arrange in baking dish appropriately sized to fit a single layer.
  2. Preheat oven to 350º F.
  3. In medium saucepan, heat butter over medium heat; add flour and stir until smooth and bubbling. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  4. Whisk in milk; add salt and pepper. Cook the sauce, stirring, until thick and bubbly.
  5. Add the mustard, cheeses and horseradish and continue cooking and stirring until cheeses have melted.
  6. Pour the cheese sauce over the cauliflower. Sprinkle top lightly with paprika.
  7. Pop into preheated 350º oven and bake, uncovered, for 20-30 minutes, or until heated through, just starting to bubble, and top is just starting to lightly brown.
  8. Remove and serve. (*Baking in lower half of oven helps to prevent over browning.)
