  • 500ml milk (or 2 ¼ cups fresh milk or any)
  • 4 tbsp. flour
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated (or any, Quickmelt, Eden etc.)
  • 2-3 tbsp. breadcrumbs, if you have them


  1. Heat a large pot of water to a boil, then add the cauliflower. Cook it for 5 mins. Check a piece to test, it should be cooked. Drain the cauliflower, then transfer to a dish
  2. Place the saucepan back on the heat and add the milk, flour and butter.
  3. Keep stirring fast and use a whisker as the butter melts and the mixture comes to the boil – the flour will disappear and the sauce will begin to thicken.

  5. Constantly stir until sauce becomes nice and thick.
  6. Turn off the heat, add in some cheese and add over the cauliflower pieces.
