Cauliflower au Gratin

Great for winter


One head of cauliflower
3/4 C Heavy Cream
2 T Butter
2 C Shredded Swiss Cheese divided
Salt and Pepper


Cut Cauliflower into chunks and wash under cold water. Pour cauliflower into a microwave steam dish (I use my pampered chef large steamer) add a small amount of water, cover and microwave on high for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, Melt 2 tablespoons of butter into a saucepan on low,

Add heavy cream and stir. as the cream warms up, add 1 to 1.5 cups of shredded Swiss cheese. Keep stirring until the cheese is completely melted. Salt and pepper to taste.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside.

Turn Broiler on, drain cauliflower and pour into a casserole dish.

With a knife, chop up the cauliflower into small chunks.

Pour sauce mixture over cauliflower, stir a little.

Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Broil on high or low until top is golden.

Note: You can use more or less heavy cream, skip the butter, more or less cheese etc.... I usually eye ball everything so the measurements above aren't quite accurate. Sometimes, I have a large head of cauliflower that requires more ingredients, sometimes I only use half the cauliflower head if I am making this for only 2 people etc....

Play with this recipe and let me know what you think.
