Cauliflower Cheese

A really rich and satisfying side to any meat dish.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 large cauliflower
  • 200ml double cream
  • 100g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 100g cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon English mustard
  • 1 quarter teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • salt and pepper

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.
  2. Plunge the cauliflower florets into a saucepan of salted boiling water and return to the boil.
  3. In a separate pan, place the cream, cream cheese, most of the grated cheese, mustard and nutmeg.
  4. Place over a low heat and stir constantly to allow the cheeses to melt. Be careful to make sure the cream doesn’t catch on the bottom of the pan.
  5. When the cauliflower has started to soften, but still has some bite, drain and add it to the sauce mixture.
  6. Mix thoroughly and pour into a baking dish.
  7. Sprinkle the remaining cheddar over and bake for 30 minutes.

Tips: If you are cooking for one, freeze the extra 3 portions for another time.
