  • 2 medium heads cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  • Steam cauliflower until crisp-tender.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a casserole dish. I use one slightly smaller than a 9X13-inch pan.
  • In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add green onions and garlic and cook 1 minute.
  • Add flour and cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute.
  • Gradually whisk in heavy cream and milk. Cook until bubbly and thickened.
  • Stir in salt, black pepper, dried sage, and red pepper.
  • Add cheddar cheese and remove from heat. Stir until melted. Check for seasoning and add more salt if desired.
  • Add cauliflower to cheese mixture and then pour entire mixture into prepared casserole dish.
  • In a small bowl, combine Panko crumbs, Parmesan cheese and melted butter. Scatter over top of cauliflower. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.
