Cauliflower au GratinFrom chefelaine 7 years ago
How to make it
- Separate the cauliflower into florets.
- Place the cauliflower and lemon juice into boiling, salted water.
- Return to boil, lower heat, and cover.
- Simmer until just tender.
- Do not overcook, as it will cook further in the sauce.
- Butter the bottom of a baking pan or hotel pan and place the cauliflower in it about 2 in deep.
- (Individual ovenproof serving dishes may also be used instead.)
- Cover with the hot sauce.
- Mix together the bread crumbs and cheese and sprinkle evenly over the top.
- Drizzle the melted butter over the top.
- Bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes to heat through.
- Brown the top under the broiler or salamander.
- Adding lemon juice to cooking water helps to keep white vegetables white. It may be omitted if desired.
- Substitute cheddar cheese sauce for the béchamel or Mornay, and use grated cheddar cheese instead of parmesan for topping.
- Other vegetables may be prepared au gratin, such as asparagus, Belgian endive, broccoli, brussels sprouts, celery, celery root, leeks, and turnips.
