Cauliflower Ham Bake

This is from Better Homes and Gardens 
ALL-Time Favorite Casserole recipes (1977)

1 large head cauliflower
2 T butter or margarine
2 T all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
1 4oz can mushrooms stems & pieces, drained
1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1 T butter or margarine melted

Break cauliflower into flowerets (should have about 5 cups); cook in boiling salted water till tender,
about 10 mins. Drain thoroughly, set aside.

In saucepan melt 2 T butter or margarine. Stir in flour; add milk all at once. Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly. Add cheese and stir till melted. Stir in cookedcauliflower, ham, and mushrooms. Turn into 2 qt casserole. Combine crumbs and melted butter; sprinkle over top. Bake, uncovered, at 350 till heated through, 30-35 mins.

Makes 6 servings

This is tonight's adventure. We've had this several times. One of the family's favorites!! The only "MIS" in this adventure would be the size casserole dish they say to turn it into. I use a 2.5qt dish and be sure to mix the ingredients before turning it into the dish.  Also, Frequently I just sprinkle the bread crumbs on top (not mixing with butter...) or skip the crumbs on top altogether. They've never missed them and it's a few less fat and calories that I don't need.  (((HUGS)))   ;D
