Cauliflower Gratin (Low Carb)

Last night (and last minute!) I decided to make this Cauliflower Gratin. I tweaked the dish to make it low carb and it came out delicious! It was so much like mac and cheese that I can see why A Pinch of Joy called it "Mock and Cheese". For eight servings, it has 4.3 carbs. After subtracting the 0.9 g fiber, you have a net carb count of 3.4 carbs! Next time the only changes I would make are to cut the cauliflower into smaller pieces and to use two heads of cauliflower. The ratio of cheese to cauliflower was wayyy too much cheese for me. (Todd loved it though!)
