  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Mix in flour and bring to a boil. Add pepper and salt as mixture starts to thicken. Slowly add milk and stir; return to a boil and remove from heat.

  • Meanwhile, place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower, cover, and steam until tender, 3 to 6 minutes.

  • Transfer cauliflower to an ungreased baking dish. Pour sauce over cauliflower. Sprinkle bread crumbs on top and lay butter slices over bread crumbs.

  • Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until golden brown on top and heated through, about 30 minutes.

10.28.18 The sauce was VERY thick and I did add more milk (used skim milk what I had on hand which worked well) to thin it out for fear that if too thick you d just have a glob on top of the cauliflower and it wouldn t coat the cauliflower well. I did give the florets a quick toss in the sauce before spooning into the baking dish. Unfortunately by steaming the cauliflower until tender then baking for 30 minutes resulted in mushy cauliflower so I would recommend that you don t steam your cauliflower until it s really done. I used Italian panko bread crumbs and the topping was just crisp enough at 35 minutes. Super simple to make and pretty darn tasty just a little tweaking to make it 5 stars. Read More

I thickened the sauce with corn starch as I am gluten free. The cauliflower and topping turned out well but the sauce was rather tasteless. I won t make it again. Read More
