Cauliflower cheese
Source: sainsburys


  • 100 g bacon lardons
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 20 g unsalted butter
  • 30 g plain flour
  • 500 ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 60 g mature Cheddar, grated
  • 1 whole nutmeg, to grate
  • 0.25 tsp English mustard
  • 1 head cauliflower (approx 650g), cut into florets
  • 250 g Brussels sprouts, halved
4 servings


  • Cook the bacon lardons in a non-stick pan over a medium heat for 5-10 minutes, until crisp and golden. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Add the oil to the pan and cook the onion for 5-10 minutes until soft, then add the butter and let it melt before stirring through the flour.
  • Cook for 2 minutes, before stirring in the milk, a little at a time. Bring to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes before adding half the cheese, the nutmeg and mustard.
  • Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C, 180°C fan, gas 6. Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the cauliflower for 5 minutes, adding in the Brussels sprouts for the last 3 minutes until just tender. Drain and place into the bottom of a 1.5 litre baking dish with the bacon lardons. Pour over the cheese sauce and top with the remaining cheese.
  • Cook in the oven for 15 minutes, until golden on top and bubbling.
