    Really gourmet quality side dish. When I tasted the milk/cheese sauce prior to pouring over the cauliflower, I thought it was bland. I used the Tillamook as directed, doubled the mustard and nutmeg. Baked 20 min. then added smoked cheddar mixed with Panko breadcrumbs. Used half the butter and salt. Outstanding and very rich!

    this looks great! We always had this when I was growing up, though a plainer version with, as I recall a velveeta cheese sauce. I haven't made it in a long time but your recipe looks really better than ours and I will try it soon. Thanks!
