Cauliflower Casserole

1 large cauliflower, broken into flowerets
6 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Cook cauliflower in boiling salted water until just crisp-tender, about 6 minutes. Drain cauliflower and transfer to a lightly buttered 1 1/2-quart baking dish.
In a small saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons of butter; blend in flour and salt. Stir until smooth and bubbly. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly. Continue cooking and stirring until sauce is thickened and smooth, for about 3 minutes. Stir in mustard. Pour sauce over cauliflower in casserole.

Melt remaining butter in a medium saucepan; add bread crumbs and toss to coat. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over casserole then top with buttered bread crumbs. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes, or until bubbly and browned.

Serves 6.
