Cauliflower Cheese

Cauliflower cheese or Cauliflower and cheese is a traditional British dish, it can be eaten as main course for both lunch or dinner, or else as a side dish to serve along with roasted meats. This dish is simply prepared by cooking cauliflower in boiling water, covered and baked in oven with a milk and cheese based sauce or else a simply  with a white sauce flavoured with nutmeg or with English mustard, topped with grated cheese and bread crumbs.This post was sitting in my draft since a long as i prepared this dish for International blogging marathon i ran with other marathoners few months back for the alphabet U but finally i made a dish from Uganda,obviously i couldnt able to post this dish earlier.
