Baked Cauliflower and Cheese


by: Aarthi

I like cauliflower in all form like fried,baked,roasted...Specially this one....I fell in love with this dish from the time I made this dish and now I make this more often...The cauliflower in this recipe is very creamy inside and crispy outside..The addition of breadcrumbs make it more crispy and yummy...The sauce with I used is basic béchamel sauce...If you want to avoid butter in the sauce you could use olive oil or any oil in this..I hope you all will give this dish a try and let me know what you think...
