Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 6 Servings


  • 1 large cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 6 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese


Cook cauliflower in boiling salted water until just crisp-tender, about 6 minutes. Drain cauliflower and transfer to a lightly buttered 1 1/2-quart baking dish.

In a small saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons of butter; blend in flour and salt. Stir until smooth and bubbly. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly. Continue cooking and stirring until sauce is thickened and smooth, for about 3 minutes. Stir in mustard. Pour sauce over cauliflower in casserole.

Melt remaining butter; toss with the bread crumbs .

Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over casserole then top with buttered bread crumbs.

Bake at 375° for 20 minutes, or until bubbly and browned.
