Cauliflower with Cheese Sauce

Making Cauliflower awesome!


  • 3 tbsp of butter
  • 3-4 tbsp of flour
  • 1-2 cup of milk
  • ¼ to ½ container of Imperial Sharp Cheese or shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Salt / pepper to taste
  • Cayenne pepper for zip
  • 1 tsp of dry mustard
  • Cauliflower florets, washed


  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter, add enough flour to make a rou (paste).
  2. Add mild a small amount at a time initially and mix well before adding more milk.
  3. When sauce has been thinned out to desired consistency, add cheese and seasonings.
  4. Cook sauce on low heat until cheese is melted.
  5. Add more milk if necessary.
  6. Cook the cauliflower.
  7. You can microwave until barely tender or boil a couple of minutes or my favourite..saute’ in a small amount of vegetable oil until browned and tender.
  8. Don’t overcook the cauliflower..leave it slightly underdone.
  9. Pour sauce over cauliflower and mix gently.
  10. Serve hot. Extra sauce can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.
