Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut the cauliflower into florets and rinse under cold water. Add them to double boiler with water in the bottom along with the lid and steam them until soft; approximately 3-4 minutes after the water comes to a boil. Drain the water and add the cauliflower to the pot.
While the cauliflower is steaming, make the cheese sauce. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter over medium heat in a small saucepan and whisk in the flour to form a roux.
Add milk and cheese, reduce heat to a simmer and stir until sauce thickens.
Add the cheese sauce to the cauliflower and mix well; then add to an oven safe baking dish.
Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and combine with the breadcrumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs on top of the cauliflower and bake 30 minutes until hot and bubbly.
