How To Make blumenkohl mit schinken (cauliflower with ham)

  • 1
    Place the head of cauliflower in a steamer and steam for 15 to 20 minutes, until crisp-tender. When it is cool enough to handle, break the cauliflower into florets about 1-1/2 inches across. Cut the heavy stems into 1-inch cubes. Arrange the cauliflower in a single layer in a buttered 5-cup gratin dish. Sprinkle the ham evenly on top.
  • 2
    Whisk together the egg yolks, sour cream, heavy cream, nutmeg, salt and pepper and pour evenly over the ham and cauliflower.
  • 3
    Toss the crumbs and Parmesan well to combine, then scatter evenly over the cauliflower mixture. Dot well with the butter.
  • 4
    Bake, uncovered, in a preheated 375-degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until bubbling and touched with brown. Serve at once.
