AMAZING Cheesy Cauliflower

Oh, yes, this is a vegetable dish, but don't let the "cauliflower" in the title fool you. It is probably the most unhealthy vegetable you have ever eaten. It has enough fat and calories in the sauce to cancel out even the most minute amount of nutritional value you may receive from the cauliflower. That being said, this is one of our absolute most favorite, tasty vegetable side dishes we have ever made. Enjoy!
1 head cauliflower
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 Tablespoons butter
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
Place whole cauliflower in a large stockpot. Add water to cover. Cook until tender (about 30 minutes). - (or you may steam in microwave instead if desired). Remove from stockpot. Drain well and cool. Lightly salt and pepper surface of cauliflower. Place whole cauliflower in baking dish. Set aside. In a bowl, microwave onion and butter for 2 minutes. Stir together with mayonnaise and cheese. Spread mixture over surface of cauliflower. Place under broiler in oven until lightly browned. Set on bed of greens if desired, and serve immediately.
