Step 1

Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, then add the cauliflower and cook for 5 mins.

Step 2

Drain the cauliflower, then tip into an ovenproof dish

Step 3

Heat oven to 220C/200C/gas 7

Step 4

Put the saucepan back on the heat and add the milk, flour and butter. Keep whisking fast as the butter melts and the mixture comes to the boil – the flour will disappear and the sauce will begin to thicken. Whisk for 2 mins while the sauce bubbles and becomes nice and thick.

Step 5

Turn off the heat, stir in most of the cheese and pour over the cauliflower. Scatter over the remaining cheese and breadcrumbs.

Step 6

Pop in the oven the Cauliflower cheese and bake for 20 mins until bubbling.
