The topping to me was a bit dry as well as the meat and the cheese just formed a thick layer that mushed up the cauliflower when you dug into it. If I made this again I would probably use ground turkey cooked with this creole mix they sell at Walmart here (its like onions, green peppers, and other things) and seasonings. Then I might mix in some chicken stock to make the meat a bit more moist. In terms of the topping I would still double it as recommended (I also used canned green beans like another reviewer) but I would probably use more sour cream and mix the cheese in with the cauliflower to see how it came out.
This is low carb comfort food at it's finest! My family devoured the entire pan. Definitely a keeper!!! Oh, the only thing I may try next time is to double the amount of cauliflower puree so that the top layer of faux potato is a little more true to the proportion of traditional Shepard's pie.The recipe as written only yields enough to barely cover the meat mixture. Still... it's delish!!!
This is really good. The different thing that I did was I used salt reduced canned green beans and I didn't use bacon. I also used a 3x14 pan. Family liked it. Was told to make it again.
Loved it. I'm on a gestational diabetes diet and looking for uber-low carb. What I did, though, was make instant potatoes with 1/2 half & half & water and the hot water it called for & then added 1/2 the amount of cauliflower (which I really don't like) to the potatoes and you couldn't tell and my blood sugar was still low :)
We loved this. My DH went nuts over it and couldn't believe it was low carb. I used leftover lamb from Easter and rough chopped it the food processor, otherwise followed the recipe to a T. Thanks. Low carbing is hard to do and tasty recipes are hard to find. Next time I well use ground beef as I usually don't have lamb around.
this was good, easy, and a little different! Cut it in half but used the same ingredient amounts.
