This cauliflower casserole is one of our favorite side dishes.  I am not a big fan of cooked cauliflower and I love it “fixed” this way.

1 small head cauliflower, washed and broken into pieces
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of celery soup, undiluted
1/4 to 1/2 cup green onion, chopped
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sesame seed, toasted
4 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, divided
Salt to taste
Wash cauliflower and break into pieces.  Place in a sprayed casserole with about 1/4 cup water,  covered with saran wrap and cook in microwave for about 6 minutes. While cauliflower is cooking, place almonds and sesame seed on a baking sheet and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.  Remove cauliflower from microwave, drain and return to casserole.   Combine remaining ingredients except for 1/2 cup cheese, almonds and sesame seeds and pour over cauliflower. Mix with spoon.   Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese on top and sprinkle almonds and sesame seed over casserole.  Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.
Makes 6 to 8 servings. Enjoy!
