Cauliflower and bacon gratin
Prep Time : 0:15 | Cook Time : 0:30 | Total Time : 0:45 | Serving : 4 person.


  • 1/2 (about 500g) cauliflower, cut into florets

  • 100g bacon, trimmed, thinly sliced

  • 40g butter

  • 40g (1/4 cup) plain flour

  • 375ml (1 1/2 cups) skim milk

  • 40g (1/4 cup) coarsely grated reduced-fat cheddar


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C. Cook the cauliflower in a large saucepan of salted boiling water for 8-10 minutes or until tender. Drain well.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, heat a small non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until crisp. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.

  • Step 3

    Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat until foaming. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds or until the mixture bubbles and begins to come away from the side of pan. Gradually add half the milk, whisking constantly, until combined. Add the remaining milk and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until sauce thickens. Stir in the cheddar. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Step 4

    Arrange cauliflower in a 2L (8-cup) capacity ovenproof dish. Top with half the bacon and pour over the cheddar sauce. Top with the remaining bacon. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Serve with pork cutlets.
