Cauliflower Au Gratin


  • 1 large head cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 1/4 cup butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup dried bread crumbs


  1. In a medium size saucepan cook cauliflower in boiling salted water for 10 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Combine cauliflower with 2 Tbsp butter, onion, cheese, sour cream, and salt. Spoon into a 1 1/2 quart casserole.
  3. Melt remaining butter and toss with bread crumbs. Sprinkle over the cauliflower mixture.
  4. Bake at 350º for 30 minutes or till heated through.


For a healthier version, you can substitute low-fat cheddar cheese, use light or fat-free sour cream, use whole wheat bread crumbs, and you can add 1 tsp of wheat germ to the bread crumbs.
