Best Cauliflower Cheese Ever

This cauliflower cheese recipe looks pretty simple, but Verna from Coalhurst, Alberta who shared it with the community calls it the best ever, so I am assuming it’s pretty good.

Verna says: Each time we have a family gathering my family insists on this dish. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Verna didn’t give exact measurements, so I have given estimates in the ingredient list. Please note that they are estimates only. Play with it yourself to see how you like it.

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into flowerets
  • 1 cup mayonnaise, approximately
  • 1 tablespoon mustard, approximately
  • 1/4 cup milk, approximately
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, strong, grated (approximately)


  • Steam the cauliflower for about 10-15 minutes. I like it a bit crispy. Drain and put in a 9"x9" pan sprayed with Pam.
  • In small bowl add mayonnaise, small amount of wet mustard. Whisk until smooth. Add a little milk and whisk until you can pour it over the cauliflower. Grate cheese - I use old cheddar. Cover the cauliflower dish with lots of cheese.
  • Put the baking dish in the oven and broil until the cheese is melted and browned.
