CAULIFLOWER O' GRATEN

I like cauliflower. I make soup with it, I pickle it I use it in salads and dips. Some people like broccoli but not cauliflower. I wonder why? Anyway this is an easy way to prepare this nutritious vegetable. I usually use the fresh ones but this time I used frozen to save time and steps.  If I'm cooking with fresh cauliflower, first  I cut the stem  part and put the whole vegetable in a pot and boil it  for 15-20 minutes. After cooling I split it in half to carve out the core, brake the flowers apart and proceed with my recipe. Frozen cauliflower is already separated into fleurettes, so its no brainer ......
1 bag of frozen cauliflower (don't thaw)
2 Tbsp of butter
1/2 Cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 Cups of Milk
1 Tsp nutmeg
1/2 Cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/2 Cup sharp Cheddar cheese mixed with Mozzarella



Place frozen cauliflower on a baking dish (if some are clumped separate them by pulling apart under running tap water).
Melt butter in a medium size sauce pan and add  flour. Stir until butter is absorbed into flour. Add nutmeg. Using a whisk slowly add milk to the mixture and keep whisking until there are no clumps. It has to be in the consistency of a light pudding. Add Mozzarella cheese, stir and pour over the frozen vegetable. Sprinkle with the Cheddar cheese mix. Bake in 350 degrees oven for 20-25 minutes.
