📜 Gordon Ramsay Cauliflower Cheese Ingredients

  • 500g of cauliflower
  • 30g of plain flour
  • 30g of butter
  • 400g of whole milk
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 pinch of Ujamaa Spice Co. Nutmeg

  • 1 tsp English mustard

👩‍🍳 How To Make Gordon Ramsay Cauliflower Cheese

  1. Get started by warming the milk in a pan or microwave over low heat and adding the bay leaf.
  2. Put the flour and butter in a pot and heat it over medium heat. Cook for one minute, stirring constantly, to remove the raw flour taste by making a paste (a roux) with the ingredients.
  3. Carefully whisk in the warmed milk (after removing the bay leaf) until you have a thick, smooth sauce.
  4. Mix in the grated cheeses, saving a good amount for the top. Add the vinegar mustard and nutmeg once the butter has melted into the sauce.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste, and then season to your liking.
  6. Turn the oven on to 180 degrees Celsius (or gas mark 4).
  7. Cut the florets from the stems and thinly slice both. Put it into the sauce and mix it all together.
  8. Transfer to an oven-safe dish and top with the remaining breadcrumbs and cheese.
  9. Bake for 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the cauliflower comes out clean, and bake until the topping is brown and crisp.
