Skillet Cauliflower Gratin

Make cauliflower kid-friendly (and still healthy) with the addition of cheese and breadcrumbs.  Makes 4 servings.

What you’ll need:

  • 4 cups cauliflower florets (about 1/2 head)
  • 1 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

What you’ll do:

  • Preheat the broiler on your oven.
  • In a large skillet, bring the cauliflower, 1 1/4 cups milk and salt to a boil.  Reduce the heat, cover and simmer until the cauliflower is tender, about 5 minutes.
  • While the cauliflower is cooking, combine the breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup cheese and oil in a small bowl.
  • Whisk together the flour and 1/4 cup milk in another small bowl until smooth.
  • Once the cauliflower is tender, stir the flour and milk mixture into the pan and cook, stirring until thickened, about 1 minute.
  • Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup cheese, chives, mustard and pepper.
  • Sprinkle with the breadcrumb and cheese topping mixture.
  • Broil about 1-2 minutes or the top is browned and crispy.
