Cheddar Cauliflower

Easy Cheddar Cauliflower / Don't Panic Mom
I couldn’t wait to try this recipe out on my crew. I’ve made it three times and I’m always happily surprised to see them hunkered down around the cookie sheet. I adapted it from Maryclare, and she adapted it from Julie Badger Jensen. Then you’ll adapt it to suit your family, too. That’s the beauty of recipes like this one. 
The cooking strategy is really clever – use a steamer to quickly cook the cauliflower and then finish with the broiler to add some wonderful color. I used cheddar because that’s all I had in the refrigerator. Don’t be shy to use any spices or cheese that you have on hand.
