PREVIOUS: Cauliflower Rice NEXT: Cheesy Chicken Cauliflower Casserole

Ingredients (5)

  • 1 medium head of cauliflower
  • 4 cups shredded medium cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 1 medium chopped onion
  • 1 and 1/2 cup of mayonaise

I found this recipe in a magazine more than 30 years ago and have altered it over the years as a side dish. It’s always been the most popular dish at dinner parties and office pot lucks.


  1. 1Core cauliflower enough to take out most of stem so that it doesn’t fall apart and the shape remains intact. Place the cauliflower in dish with small amount of water and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high until it is al dente or almost tender, approximately 10 minutes depending upon size of cauliflower.
  2. 2While cauliflower is steaming, mix remaining ingredients into a paste (should be about the consistancy of pimento cheese). Drain cauliflower and spread cheese mixture over the top and sides. Bake in a 375 oven until cheese is melted and bubbly.
