This cauliflower cheese recipe sounds pretty tasty to us, though if you are making it don’t forget that the double cream will boost its fat/calorie content.


1 medium cauliflower
6oz (185g) PILGRIMS CHOICE Cheddar
4oz (125g) Self Raising flour
1 pint (475g) of milk
2oz (60g) butter
Tsp (5ml) English mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
Tbsp (15ml) Double Cream


  1. Boil cauliflower until tender, drain and place cauliflower on kitchen towel to remove excess water, then place in an ovenproof dish.
  2. Melt butter in a large saucepan.
  3. Add flour all at once with a little milk, beat with a whisk, slowly adding all of the milk. Keep heat low to prevent the mixture from going lumpy.
  4. Remove mixture from heat and keep whisking until smooth.
  5. Return mixture to the heat and bring to boil.
  6. Once the sauce has boiled reduce heat and add cheese, mustard, cream and salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Gently stir the mixture until all ingredients are melted into sauce, and remove from heat.
  8. Cover the cauliflower with all of the sauce and top with the remaining grated cheese.
  9. Place in the oven (Gas Mark 6/200°/400°F) for 30 minutes until golden brown.
  10. Serve with warm crusty bread/steamed vegetables or salad.
