Four-cheese Cauliflower Gratin

Share

This Four-cheese cauliflower gratin is one of the best side dishes I have ever made. The whole family loves this dish which is made with not one, not two, not three but FOUR cheeses combined. This makes it a great way to use up any leftover cheese you have hanging around. 

Start by making a roux from butter and flour which will thicken the sauce. Continue by adding milk, mustard, cream cheese and Parmesan until you have a creamy sauce. Layer the sauce and cauliflower slices in a baking dish until all the ingredients are used. Bake the gratin in the preheated oven for 1 hour 30 minutes until the cheese on top is golden brown. 

To make my Four-cheese cauliflower gratin, you will need the following ingredients:

Mine didn't turn out looking like the photo it was actually super crumbly and didn't look all that appealing but it tasted alright I guess.

Loved the flavor it's super unique and cheese is legit my favorite thing.

Joelle Zanis

I added a bit more mozzarella cheese to mine than what's written and also replaced the whole milk for soy instead which left a bit of an aftertaste but it was good nonetheless.
