Twice Baked Cauliflower

When you read this recipe, you are going to realize that the first “baking” of the cauliflower is really a round in the microwave. In any case, the meal tasted just like twice baked potatoes, so I opted for that title!

  • Steam one large head of cauliflower.twice baked cauliflower
    • Clean and break into bite-size pieces.
    • Place in micro-cooker with 1/4 cup milk.
    • Microwave for ten minutes, stirring halfway through.
  • Chop and fry six slices of bacon. Drain.
  • In medium mixing bowl, combine…
    • 1 block of reduced fat cream cheese
    • 4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
    • 4 ounces colby jack cheese
    • 1 t. garlic powder
    • Pepper to taste
  • Mix…
    • cheese mix
    • cauliflower
    • bacon
    • 1 bunch of green onions, sliced
  • Place in 8 inch round baking dish and bake at 375* for 25-30 minutes, until bubbly.

It was all I could do to stop myself from a) eating the mix before I baked it and b) eating the entire casserole. If you want to truly commit to “low carb,” steam the cauliflower with heavy cream. I called this dinner, but it would make an awesome side dish for meat on the grill (or any other delicious entree). By the way, I made this in the morning to save myself time in the evening. The casserole’s awesome texture and flavor confirm that it can be made ahead of time with no ill-intended results!
