      Cauliflower with Cheese Sauce

      1 head of cauliflower

      1 tbs butter

      1 tbs flour

      1/2 tsp ground mustard

      Pinch nutmeg

      3/4 to 1 cup milk or half-and-half

      1 cup/4 ounces cheddar cheese or a cheddar Jack blend, shredded

      Kosher salt to taste

      Freshly ground black pepper to taste

      Separate the cauliflower into small florets.

      Put the florets in a steaming basket over about 1/2-inch of simmering water.

      Cover and let the cauliflower steam for about 5 to 8 min, until crisp-tender or tender.

      Meanwhile, prepare the cheese sauce. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.

      Add the flour, ground mustard, and nutmeg and cook, whisking or stirring constantly, for about 1 1/2 to 2 min.

      Gradually whisk in 3/4 cup of the milk or half-and-half and continue cooking, stirring constantly, until thickened.

      Stir in the shredded cheese and continue cooking, stirring, until the cheese has melted.

      Thin the sauce with a tbs or two of milk, if desired, and add salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.  Makes 1 1/4 cups of sauce.

      Transfer the cauliflower to a serving dish and spoon the sauce over it or serve the cauliflower and pass the sauce separately.  Serves 4-6
