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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Grease the same casserole used for cooking the cauliflower and pour in the cauliflower mixture.
  5. Top with the remaining cheese and crumbled bacon.
  6. Bake uncovered 20 minutes at 400º or until lightly browned.

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!
