  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 Large Head Cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 1/4 c. diced green pepper
  • 1 jar (7.3 oz.) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1/4 c. butter or margarine
  • 1/3 c. all purpose flour

  • 1 c. (4 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. diced pimientos
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Paprika, optional

Directions

  • In a large saucepan, cook cauliflower in a small amount of water for 6 to 7 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain well.
  • In a medium saucepan, sauté green pepper and mushrooms in butter for 2 minutes.
  • Add flour; gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil; boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from the heat; stir in cheese until melted.
  • Add pimientos and salt.
  • Place half of the cauliflower in a greased 2 quart baking dish; top with half of the sauce.

  • I have doubled this too. You can combine broccoli with the cauliflower as well. Can be made the day before.

Notes

I got this years ago in a Taste of Home Magazine. I suppose they call it Christmas Cauliflower is because of the red and green in it, but of course, can be made anytime.

Whenever I make it I get rave reviews. I know you will enjoy it.
