Cauliflower Gratin with Almond Crust

There was an article in the Taste Section of San Antonio Express about the best recipes in the 25 years of Taste. This was one of them. I loved it.  I ate it tonight as my dinner. I will definitely make this again.

Printable Recipe:

1/4 cup butter
1 head cauliflower separated into florets
1 small onion chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt (I think it could have used a little more)
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 cup (4 oz)  shredded Gruyere cheese
1/2 cup Japanese bread crumbs (panko)
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup grated Paremsan cheese
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add cauliflower, onion, and garlic. Sauge' 10 minutes or until golden and just tender. Sprinkle with flour, thyme, and salt. Stir well. Remove from heat. Spoon cauliflower mixture into a 11" X 7" baking dish and drizzle with cream.  Sprinkle with Gruyere cheese, bread crumbs, almonds, and Parmesan, in that order. Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden.
