This week has so far been all about using up leftover things from the weekend. We’d originally intended to make cauliflower cheese with bacon but I was worried that we’d be hungry later on so decided to forgo the bacon for chicken instead. We roasted some chicken thighs with some onion, garlic and thyme but as the cauliflower cheese was the main attraction we’ve left those out of the photograph.
To make the cauliflower cheese, we steamed the cauliflower until it was almost cooked through and left it to “dry” out while making the white sauce. We used Delia’s all-in-one recipe which is really easy and never fails. Just add milk, butter and flour to the pan on a medium heat and whisk continually until it’s thickened. Turn the heat down as low as it will go and cook the flour out for six minutes. Grate in plenty of cheese, season and mix, then pour over the cauliflower. At this point I would normally add some mustard but I forgot.
The very best thing about this was that we both got lots of crunchy, cheesey bits from around the edge of the dish. Would have been great with bacon though.
