Scottish Recipes: Cauliflower Cheese and Whisky
Cheese was often made in individual farmhouses and was combined with cauliflowers grown either in the fields or in the kitchen garden. Adding a few oz of whisky adds an extra flavour to this popular dish.
Recipe Ingredients:One medium cauliflower
6 oz (185g) finely chopped mushrooms
Half of a finely chopped green pepper
Half UK pint (10 fluid oz or 300ml or one and a quarter cups double cream). Note that UK and US pints differ.
4 oz grated cheese. Use cheese with a good flavour.
3 fluid oz (80 ml or six tablespoons or less than half a US cup) Scotch whisky
1 ounce fine oatmeal
Pinch of nutmeg
Salt and pepper
2 oz (60g or half a US cup) chopped, mixed nuts
Preparation Method:Remove the cauliflower stalks and cook the florets in hot water for five minutes. Drain and put into an ovenproof dish with the chopped mushrooms and green peppers mixed in.
Heat the cream gently in a small pan, add the cheese, stirring frequently. When the cheese has melted, remove from the heat and mix in the whisky and oatmeal. Add salt and pepper to taste and the pinch of nutmeg. Pour over the cauliflower and sprinkle the chopped nuts on top. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 for 45 minutes. Serve immediately.
