Cauliflower Au Gratin

When I was younger, my mom always served fresh vegetables with regular cheese sauce on the side. It was delicious, but then I found this recipe for "au gratin". So, the cheese sauce bakes into the vegetables.

For a variation, I sometimes double this recipe and add some cooked cubed ham and use this recipe, then, as a main dish. I have a few recipes listed that are versatile like that, and this is another one of those.
