    Serves 8
    Kosher salt, as needed, plus 1/2 teaspoon
    Vegetable oil spray
    1 large head cauliflower, cut into small florets
    3/4 cup heavy cream
    2 ounces cream cheese, cut into small pieces
    1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
    1 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, plus cup for topping the casserole
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

    Preheat the oven to 375F. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, seasoning the water with salt. Spray an 8x8 baking dish with vegetable oil spray.

    Cook the cut cauliflower in the boiling water until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.

    Drain well and pat between several layers of paper towels to dry. Transfer the cauliflower to the baking dish and set aside.

    Bring the cream to a simmer in a small saucepan and then whisk in the cream cheese and mustard, continuously whisking until smooth.

    Stir in the 1 1/2 cups of cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and whisk just until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat, pour over the cauliflower, and stir all to combine.

    Top with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese and bake until browned and bubbly hot, about 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.

    Helpful Hints
    To save on paper towels, we’ve found that you can place the cauliflower in a colander and drain the excess water by pressing down on the florets with a heavy bowl.

    We may live without poetry, music and art; We may live without conscience, and live without heart; We may live without friends; we may live without books, But civilized man cannot live without cooks.
