This Gluten Free Cauliflower, Cheese, and Ham Bake is a creamy, hearty, scrumptious dish. It layers in nutty and salty Gruyere Cheese, with a creamy Vegetable broth based sauce with garlic and parsley. Then the ham and cauliflower are folded into all of this goodness and it's baked in the oven until it all becomes one knock-your-socks-off dish! #cauliflower #lowcarb #glutenfree #casserole #onepot #familydinner #mealprep #easydinner #dinner #healthydinner #healthyfood #healthyrecipes
Cut the head of cauliflower in half and then quarters. Cut out the core and discard. Then cut off into bite-size florets.
Mince the garlic. Shred the gruyere. Chop the parsley. Dice the ham.
At this point, you can store the prepared ingredients in the fridge or continue on to put everything together and bake.
Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees. You will need a 9x13 Casserole Dish or similar size.
In the casserole dish, start by mixing the cold milk with the cornstarch until dissolved. Then add in the broth, then cheese, garlic, dijon, parsley, and ham.
Add the cauliflower florets and mix to combine. Bake in the oven for 50 minutes covered.
While the cauliflower Cordon Bleu is baking, make the topping. Make bread crumbs using a slice of gluten free bread and blending it in a food processor. Mix it with the cheese, parsley, and a dash of salt and pepper.
Remove the bake from the oven and sprinkle the topping all over top. Put it back in the oven to bake for the final 10 minutes until the topping is crispy and golden.
