  • Prepare cauliflower by removing the outer leaves and removing the stalk from the head by cutting around it with a sharp knife. Leave the cauliflower head whole.
  • In a large sauce pan, bring salt water to a boil and place the whole head of cauliflower, stem down, into the boiling water. Cook at a gentle boil for 15 to 20 minutes. Check every 5 minutes so cauliflower does not overcook. Cauliflower is done when tender-crisp. Remove cauliflower from boiling water when it is done and allow it to drain, stem side down, in a colander.
  • While cauliflower is cooking, place butter (margarine) in a small sauce pan and begin melting. Add flour, salt, pepper, and mustard to butter (margarine) and stir until well mixed and butter is melted.
  • Stir in the milk and continue to cook over medium heat until thickened. Add cheese and stir until melted.
  • Place the head of cauliflower, stem side down, on a serving platter and pour cheese sauce over the top. Sprinkle with paprika and serve.
