Green onions and red bell pepper make this a festive choice for any holiday meal or family dinner. I use the food processor to make the bread crumbs with day-old bread or croissants, then I keep the crumbs in the freezer for casserole toppings, meatloaf, or meatballs.

Yield: Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium head cauliflower, separated into small flowerets
  • 6 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs

Preparation:

Heat oven to 350°. Butter a 2-quart baking dish.

Steam the cauliflower until just tender, about 7 minutes. Set aside. In a medium saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons of butter over medium-low heat. Add the red bell pepper and cook, stirring, until just tender, about 2 minutes. Add the green onion and chopped parsley and continue cooking for about 2 minutes longer. Add the flour and stir until blended. Stir in the milk and cook, stirring until thickened. Add 1 cup of the cheese and salt and pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring, until cheese is melted. Combine with the cauliflower and spoon into the prepared baking dish. Top with the remaining cheese.

Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and toss with the bread crumbs until crumbs are thoroughly coated. Sprinkle evenly over the casserole.

Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes, until topping is nicely browned.

Serves 4 to 6.

best Cauliflower Casserole ever!!!!, Member patcannon

I had some extra Cauliflower and wanted to try something different. I decided to try this recipe. I got to eat one serving. My 24 year old son loved it and ate the rest! I've already made it twice in the last two weeks. I will make it again.
