Directions

Preheat oven to 450.

Cook cauliflower in a large pot of boiling water until just tender, 6-8 minutes. Drain well in a colander and transfer to a buttered 2-quart baking dish.

While cauliflower is cooking, melt 2 tablespoons butter in a 3-4 quart saucepan over moderately low heat and whisk in flour. Cook roux over low heat, whisking, 3 minutes. Add milk in a slow stream, whisking, and bring to a boil, whisking frequently. Reduce heat and simmer sauce, whisking occasionally, 8 minutes. Remove from heat and add cheese, scallion greens, salt and pepper, whisking until cheese is melted. Pour cheese sauce over cauliflower and stir gently to combine.

Coarsely crumble crackers into a bowl. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in microwave, then stir in horseradish. Pour over crumbs and toss to coat.

Sprinkle crumb topping evenly over cauliflower.

Bake gratin in middle of oven until topping is golden brown, about 10 minutes.

    Maybe my Cauliflower head was small but I certainly had enough sauce to easily handle another head. I need to either keep the sauce the same and double cauliflower and topping or cut the sauce in half. Very tasty. The horseradish is a nice surprise to the taste buds! - 3/4/11

    This recipe was fabulous! I used white cheddar and jarlsberg for the cheese and Ritz crackers for the topping (my saltines were stale) and it was to die for! - 4/29/10

    It is really quite good, but just didn't seem worth the amount of steps/work required. - 8/29/10
