Directions: Low Carb Cauliflower Au Gratin

1: Preheat oven to 375° and butter a medium casserole dish. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook cauliflower for 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a bowl of ice water to cool. Drain, then lay cauliflower out on a baking sheet lined with paper towels to let dry completely. 

2: In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Whisk in flour and cook until flour is golden and starts to bubble, about 1 minute more. Add milk slowly and stir until mixture comes to a simmer. Boil until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.

3: Turn off heat and add 1 cup Gruyère, Parmesan, and thyme. Stir until cheese has melted, then season with salt and pepper. 

4: Add about half the cauliflower to prepared pan, then pour in half of the cream mixture. Repeat with remaining cauliflower and cream, then top with remaining 1 cup of Gruyère. 

5: Bake until bubbly and golden on top, about 25 minutes.

6: Garnish with parsley and serve warm.
