1 medium cauliflower 2 tablespoons flour 2 tablespoons butter -- or other fat 1 cup milk 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup grated cheese 1 cup buttered bread crumbs
Select a close white head of cauliflower. Remove the green leaves, and retain the most tender ones to cook with the cauliflower. Break the head into flowerets, and wash thoroughly in cold water. Drop the cauliflower into enough lightly salted boiling water to cover, leave the pan uncovered,, and cook for about 15 minutes, or until tender, and drain. Prepare a sauce of the flour, fat, milk, and salt. Add the cheese and stir until melted. Place the cauliflower in a greased baking dish, pour over it the sauce, cover with the bread crumbs, bake for about 20 minutes in a moderate oven, or until the crumbs are golden brown, and serve from the dish.
