Cheesy Baked Cauliflower(s)
1 large head cauliflower
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese*
* Any cheese of your choice may be substituted.
To prepare cauliflower, remove the stem and green leaves from the bottom of the head. Trim the base of the core so that the head will stand upright.
Place the whole head of cauliflower into a steamer basket, place the basket in a large pot, and add one inch of water. Cover, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook approximately 15 to 20 minutes or until tender when pierced.
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place the head of cauliflower into a baking dish or pie plate.
In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, and mustard; spread the mixture over the cauliflower. Sprinkle generously with Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, approximately 10 to 15 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown and melted. Makes approximately 2 to 4 servings
1 Cauliflower, leaves and stems trimmed
8 oz Velveeta cheese, cubed
1/2 C Butter, cubed
1 1/2 C Bread crumbs, plain (enough to cover the cauliflower)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Boil cauliflower in water (to cover) for 15 minutes. Remove and drain. Press cubes of cheese and butter in between florets. Sprinkle bread crumbs over cauliflower and wrap in foil. Place in baking dish and bake 10 to 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Yield 6 servings
