Home Recipes By product Black Bomber Cauliflower cheese bake

Whether you’re serving this bake as a side dish (it’s great with roast chicken) or as a veggie main course, the whole family will appreciate its amazing flavours, made extra rich and creamy with plenty of Black Bomber, our flagship Cheddar.

Cook’s tip: If you prefer to use cauliflower florets, reduce the cooking time for the cauliflower to 4-5 minutes, then bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

1. Steam or gently boil the cauliflower until just tender (approximately 7-8 minutes depending on the size of cauliflower), then drain thoroughly
2. Melt the butter in a nonstick pan over a medium heat. Stir in the flour to form a smooth paste, then start to gradually add milk. Stir constantly to ensure no lumps form (using a non-stick whisk will help get a smooth sauce).
3. Once all the milk is incorporated, add the mustard and stir constantly until the sauce reaches boiling point. Reduce the heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes to cook the sauce through.
4. Remove from heat and add 100g grated Black Bomber and cook very gently to melt cheese. Remove from the heat then season to taste.
5. Place the cauliflower in a large, round baking dish. Pour over the cheese sauce then sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.
6. Bake at 200C (gas 7) for 20 minutes until golden and bubbling.
7. Sprinkle with chives before serving.
