  • Cover with foil and place in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and spoon some of the sauce from the base of the dish back over the cauliflower to baste it. Pour over the double cream and place back in the oven for ten minutes.
    During this time mix together the cheeses.
  • Remove from the oven and remove and discard the foil.
  • Sprinkle over the cheeses followed by the breadcrumbs and place back in the oven for a final 20 minutes until tender and the cheesy topping golden and bubbly.
