Cauliflower Cheese with Stilton and Walnuts

This is a great comfort food dish and perks up the regular cauliflower cheese with the addition of a strong cheese and walnuts.   I adore this dish and have to be restrained from eating the whole dish myself…I growl like a rabid dog if I have to share this…

I use Stilton as I like that strong cheese with walnuts, but if this is not for you, use Cheddar instead.   The walnuts give the dish an extra crunch and taste.


1 head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets

1 cup double cream

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup cream cheese

200g stilton

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

1 tspn mustard

salt and pepper



  • Place the cauliflower in a pan of water, bring to the boil and simmer for 10-12 minutes until the cauliflower is tender.  Drain.
  • In another saucepan, heat the butter and cream until melted, then add the cream cheese.
  • Season with the mustard, salt and pepper and stir until the cream cheese has melted.
  • Add half of the stilton and stir until melted.
  • Place the cauliflower into a oven dish.
  • Spoon the cheese sauce over the cauliflower.
  • Scatter the chopped walnuts and remaining Stilton cheese over the cauliflower.
  • Place under a hot grill for 3-4 minutes until hot, bubbly and the nuts are slightly brown.
  • Eat and enjoy!
