  • 1/3 Cup diced bacon

  • 1 Cup cauliflower florets

  • 1 Cup water

  • 80gm butter

  • 1 Cup milk

  • ¼ Cup thickened cream

  • ¼ Cup grated parmesan cheese

  • 1 Teaspoon nutmeg

  • 4 eggs separated

  • 1 ½ Cups thickened cream

  • 1.

    Sauté bacon for 1 minute before adding cauliflower and a cup of water. Simmer until cauliflower tender. Blend mixture to desired texture and set aside.

    Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Add the flour, cook, stirring until thickens. Gradually add the milk stirring continuously.
