INGREDIENTS

  • 2 oz CREAM CHEESE Schnuck Markets, Inc.
  • 1 head, large (6-7" dia) Cauliflower Tops Markets, LLC
  • 1 1/2 tsp GROUND MUSTARD Topco Associates, Inc.
  • 1 tsp SALT Morton Salt, Inc.
  • 1 1/2 cup, shredded CHEDDAR CHEESE Pineland Farms Potato Company Inc.
  • 1 cup HEAVY CREAM Whole Foods Market, Inc.
  • 0 1/4 tsp Original Pepper Sauce
  • 0 1/4 tsp White Pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and prepare a 9-inch by 9-inch baking dish with olive oil spray. Heat a large pot of water to boiling and add 1/2 tsp salt.  
  2. Remove stem and leaves from cauliflower.  Cut into small bite sized pieces and place in the boiling water; cook until crisp-tender; about 5 minutes.  Drain well then pat between paper towels to remove all moisture.
  3. In a medium sauce pan bring the cream to a simmer over medium heat. Whisk the cream cheese and powdered mustard into the simmering cream until smooth.  Add 1 cup shredded cheddar, minced garlic, 1/2 tsp salt, white pepper and pepper sauce (Tabasco®, to taste) whisking until the cheese melts; about 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cauliflower.  
  4. Pour into the baking dish and top with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.  Bake for 15 minutes until browned and bubbly.  Each serving is about 2/3 cup.
