Preheat the oven to 375°F and coat a 9-inch square baking dish with nonstick spray.

In a separate pan, heat the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until soft and translucent, 4 minutes. Add the apples and continue cooking for 2 to 3 minutes longer. Add the cauliflower and panko crumbs, season to taste with salt and pepper and combine well. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and top with the blue cheese.
