Polish Cauliflower Gratinee Recipe

I served this Cauliflower Gratinee (Gratin) Recipe at a dinner party with a side salad and Potato Cheese Pierogi (of course), and it was a great hit!  Some people use heavy cream instead of milk but I wanted to keep it a lower fat menu item.  Also, you can sprinkle bread crumbs on top of the cauliflower with the cheese to give it more texture if you like.  Adjust the spice and garlic to your taste, and you have an easy baked cauliflower dish that all will enjoy!

This is the BEST recipe by far! A hit in our home!

Thank You Catherine!

That is so great to hear!  This recipe takes a little extra work than just steaming some cauliflower, but it is so worth it.  So glad your family is enjoying it.  I served this at a few dinner parties too, not a bite left over!
