    This was excellent! I didn't read the recipe properly, and grated all of the cheese with the bread crumbs, so just added extra cheese, ( and a clove of garlic, some ground pepper and a sprig of thyme) to the flour/milk/butter mix. YUM! My cauliflower hating mother ate it and said it was great

    Submitted by Megsy13 on 9. July 2016 - 21:59.

    Deliciously creamy, cheesy sauce!

    There was probably a bit much sauce for the califlower I had - perhaps mine was a little on the small side, but it was really delicious, so the extra was mopped up pretty quickly! I didn't add salt, and didn't miss it.

    I look forward to trying some variations, as it's such a versatile sauce! It would be delicious as a finishing sauce over veggies, and some of the variations in the reviews sound fantastic!

    This is delish - might try some wine in the cheese sauce next time! The instructions need some spaces inbetween as it's a bit hard to follow as you cook.

    Yummy. Although I had my cauliflower pieces too big so think I needed to have them cooked enough on the steaming process and not rely on the oven to cook or soften them at all. Will definitely make it again but will be more mindful of how crunchy the cauliflower is

    I can't believe how tasty this is! I hated cauliflower cheese as a kid.  I made this for myself and my partner (with broccoli in it as well) and I kept a bit aside with just a small amount of sauce and pureed it for my baby.

    I took a risk & used this recipe to make my first ever cauliflower bake for Christmas. I used a large head of cauliflower & a head of broccoli. It was super easy & the sauce was perfect. Lots of left over breadcrumbs popped in the freezer for next time I make this, which will be soon. Thanks for sharing!

    I enjoyed this, thank you. I had a small head of cauliflower and found that I had too much sauce and waaaay too much breadcrumb so I'll adjust quantities next time. I also found the cauliflower to be mushy so I'll decrease the steaming time next time.

    Submitted by Emix on 17. October 2015 - 20:10.

    Yummy. As well as the whole cauliflower I also added a bunch of asparagus, three carrots (I microwaved all the veges) and tuna. Even with the extra base it didn't need more bechamal sauce although it could have done with more crumb topping. With the bechamal sauce I sautéed garlic in the beginning then added Dijon mustard and parsley at the end and it turned out great.

    Great recipe.   I halved everything for just 2 of us with the exception of 500 gm water for steaming.  I shortened cooking times by 20% and added smoked paprika when cooking cheese sauce for some added depth of flavour.  I used panko crumbs with a great result.
