Number of Servings: 9


    1 large head of cauliflower
    1/2 vegetable stock cube
    1 tablespoon of butter
    2 eggs
    1/2 tsp of Dijon mustard
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    1/4 cups of sour cream
    1 tsp of salt
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper (I'm using 3 chopped jalapenos)
    2 cup shredded cheese (us Cheddar for an authentic mac-n-cheese flavor or any variety you like), separated


Preheat you oven to 375 degrees F.

Wash and trim the cauliflower. Cut it into bite-sized pieces.

There are several ways to cook the cauliflower. The original recipes says to cook it in boiling water that has been seasoned with 1/2 vegetable bouillon and 1/2 tsp salt. Drain and add to a bowl. Add butter, stir to coat; set aside.

I prefer to do it in the microwave by placing the cauliflower in a covered, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, on high, for 4-6 minutes. Remove the cover, pour off any excess liquid and lightly salt, to taste. Add butter, stir to coat; set aside.

In a separate bowl add eggs, mustard, heavy cream, sour cream, salt, pepper and cayenne. Whisk together until well combined. Pour mixture over the cauliflower. Add 1 1/2 cups of the cheese and stir well.

Pour mixture into a prepared 8 x 8-inch baking dish. Cover with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
