Skillet Cauliflower Gratin

  • Active Time 30m
  • Total Time 30m

4 servings, about 1 cup each

Nonfat milk and a bit of sharp cheddar combine to make a rich sauce without all the butter usually found in gratins.


  • 4 cups 1-inch cauliflower florets (about 1/2 large head)
  • 1 1/2 cups nonfat milk, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper


Position a rack in the upper third of the oven; preheat the broiler.

Bring the cauliflower, 1 1/4 cups milk and salt to a boil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer until the cauliflower is tender, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup cheese and oil in a small bowl. Whisk the flour and the remaining 1/4 cup milk in another small bowl until smooth; stir the mixture into the pan and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup cheese, chives, mustard and pepper. Sprinkle with the breadcrumb mixture. Broil until the top is crispy and beginning to brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
