Cauliflower Gratin with Goat Cheese

21 Nov

I adapted this recipe from one by Bobby Flay. The cauliflower still retains a wonderful texture with a bit of crisp in this creamy dish.

Time: 10min prep, 30min cook          Serves: 6


  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 cups half & half
  • 4 oz. garlic & herb goat cheese, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 pound Monterrey jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup Parmesan & Romano blend, grated
  • black pepper, freshly ground

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • In a medium casserole dish (I used 8×8 glass), arrange half of cauliflower then distribute half of goat cheese pieces and top with half of Jack cheese. Pour one cup half & half over & sprinkle pepper. Layer rest of cauliflower, goat cheese, Jack cheese, half & half and black pepper. Finally top with Parmesan/Romano. Bake for 30 minutes or until cauliflower is softened and sauce has thickened a bit. Remove from oven & let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
