Cauliflower with Cheese Sauce

This is an old Clyde family classic: broccoli or cauliflower with cheese sauce. I don’t think we ever ate these vegetables without cheese sauce. I distinctly remember getting married and thinking, “How else do you eat broccoli?” Oh, how times have changed for me. I think the last time I made this was during my first your of marriage. I’ve been married 7 1/2 years:)

Needless to say, cauliflower is delicious with cheese sauce. And if your kids won’t eat vegetables, this is certainly a way to make them.

cauliflower (cut and steamed until crispy soft)

cheese sauce:
1 1/2 T. butter
1 1/2 T. whole wheat flour
1 cup milk (any percent will work)
cheese, sliced (as much as you want and which every kind you want. I used some cheddar, Fontina, and Monterey jack. Just cheddar would be great too)

To make cheese sauce, melt butter in a small saucepan. Add flour and stir constantly until combine. Slowly add milk while continuing to stir. Continue to stir until mixture begins to bubble. Turn to low and add the cheese. Stir until melted. Use when ready by serving over cooked cauliflower.
