Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 large head cauliflower, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar, divided (reserve 1/2 cup for topping)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Season the water with salt.
  • Spray an 8x8 baking dish with vegetable oil spray.
  • Cook the cauliflower in the boiling water until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain well and place back into the hot pot for a few minutes. Transfer the cauliflower to the baking dish and set aside.
  • Bring the cream to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat, and whisk in the cream cheese and mustard until smooth. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic and whisk just until the cheese melts about 1 to 2 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Remove from heat, pour over the cauliflower, and stir to combine.
  • Top with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese and bake until browned and bubbly, about 15 minutes.
  • Allow to cool about 5 minutes then serve.
