Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the cauliflower and salt. Cook until cauliflower is tender, about 6-7 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  3. Melt the 1/4 cup butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and simmer 5 minutes.

  4. Off the heat, slowly whisk in the milk until mixture is smooth. Return to the heat and bring to a boil.

  5. Add the bay leaf and simmer 5 minutes, then season with cayenne, salt and pepper. Remove the bay leaf and stir in the goat cheese until smooth.

  6. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the breadcrumbs and heat, stirring frequently until golden, about 3 minutes. Set aside.

  7. Mix the cauliflower with the Crab Delights® and transfer to a 1-2 quart baking dish. Pour goat cheese sauce over mixture and sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and Parmesan.

  8. Bake until browned and bubbling, 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
