Cheesy Cauliflower Bake
The recipes we tried produced gloppy, bland mush. Was a tasty cauliflower casserole an impossible dream?
Why This Recipe Works
To avoid washed-out flavor in our Cheesy Cauliflower Bake, we simmered the cauliflower florets in white sauce until nearly tender. For a well-rounded sauce, we replaced some of the cream with chicken broth, which added depth and alleviated the cloyingly rich taste of the sauce. Though buttered bread crumbs added nice crunch to the top of our casserole, it needed something more. Cheese and garlic did the trick.
