"This is my family's favorite way to prepare cauliflower! The creamy cheese sauce adds great flavor to this vegetable. Cheddar cheese can also be substituted in place of the Swiss. Kids even like this dish! Easy, with minimal ingredients."

1 large head
cauliflower, separated into florets
Swiss cheese, shredded
If it's too bland, throw some dry mustard in with the flour at the beginning and sprinkle some paprika on top after baking.
My kids ate this, so it automatically gets a higer mark from me.
I too must agree that the sauce alone was a bit bland. Don't know what the first reviewer meant about the dish not needing the milk and flour. That's how you start any cheese sauce. Anyway, I added garlic and onion powders and black pepper and it was still rather uninteresting so I thought about what it is that makes fondue so tasty. In my opinion it's the wine. With that addition it turned out nicely. Thanks Brenda for a good start!
Just like my nan used to make, although i did add salt and more cheese and a bit of mustard to the sauce, and extra cheese on top, cause i love cheese.
Very good flavor.
I followed some of the advice of the other reviewers and used a little white wine. 1 1/2 c. milk and 1/2 c. white wine. I didn't add extra salt as I didn't want it too salty. I'll update how it was after we try it with dinner. EDITED: My family inhaled it, even my cauliflower-hating husband. It's a little bland, I might add some dry mustard next time.
Bland on it's own, but I added a bit of pepper, cayenne, mustard, and nutmeg and that turned it into a winner. It is saucy though and I might cut the sauce down by half next time. A nice warm comfort food for winter.
I bring this to my family gatherings and everyone loves it...even if they aren't a fan of cauliflower to begin with!
I made this to take to a cookout and it was great without any changes. I'm also adding this recipe to my holiday dinner this year as well. Thanks for sharing!
