Au Gratin Cauliflower

Collegiate Culinaire: Au Gratin Cauliflower Skillet

Guess who just had the yummiest, cheesiest dinner? This little dish from Eating Well was the perfect (healthy) comfort food for a cold and rainy night.

I made half of what the recipe calls for and added in shrimp and cumin for a little cajun twist. Also, mine appears very white in color, and that’s because I opted for mozzarella cheese instead of cheddar.


  • 4 cup(s) cauliflower, 1-inch cauliflower florets
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) milk, fat-free, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup(s) bread crumbs, fine, dry, preferably whole-wheat
  • 3/4 cup(s) cheese, cheddar, sharp, shredded and divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon oil, olive, extra virgin
  • 2 tablespoon flour, all-purpose
  • 1 tablespoon chives, fresh, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon mustard, dijon-style
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, white


1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.
2. Bring cauliflower, 1 1/4 cups milk and salt to a boil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until the cauliflower is tender, about 5 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, combine breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup cheese and oil in a small bowl. Whisk flour and the remaining 1/4 cup milk in another small bowl until smooth; stir the mixture into the pan and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute.
4. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup cheese, chives, mustard and pepper. Sprinkle with the breadcrumb mixture. Broil until the top is crispy and beginning to brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
