3 tablespoons butter or margarine
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk
2/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon chopped pimiento
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 (3 1/2-ounce) can French-fried onions, crushed and divided


Arrange cauliflower in a steamer basket over boiling water. Cover and steam 10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Place in a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish.

Melt butter in a heavy sauce-pan over low heat; whisk in flour, whisking until smooth. Cook, whisking constantly, 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk; cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Add cheese and next 4 ingredients, stirring until cheese melts. Stir in 1 1/2 cups crushed onions. Pour mixture over cauliflower.

Bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining crushed onions, and bake 5 more minutes.
