I made this for Thanksgiving once and one of my daughter's friends wanted to know what was in the "potatoes"! People who claim to dislike cauliflower love this dish.
- 16 ounces frozen cauliflower
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 2 ounces cream cheese (cut up)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, divided
- 6 slices bacon, fried and crumbled, divided
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
- Place the frozen cauliflower in a 1 1/2-quart casserole. Add 1/2 cup water. Cover and microwave on high for 7 minutes. Stir and cook another 4 minutes. Let stand 2 minutes. Place in a colander to drain and blot with paper towels to absorb as much moisture as possible.
- Place the cauliflower in a food processor. Add the sour cream, cream cheese, butter, half the cheese, half the bacon, salt and pepper to processor. Process until contents have the smooth consistency of mashed potatoes.
- Grease the same casserole used for cooking the cauliflower and pour in the cauliflower mixture.
- Top with the remaining cheese and crumbled bacon.
- Bake uncovered 20 minutes at 400º or until lightly browned.
Delicious! My husband said this would satisfy a carb craving for him.
This is a wonderful, flavorful lower carb. alternative to mashed potatoes or twice-baked potatoes. It was part of our Thanksgiving feast this year, and it was gobbled up by people who claimed they didn't like cauliflower!
