Loaded Cauliflower Mash

Everyone loves this one and I honestly don’t even miss mash potatoes because these are so much more flavorful. I made these this year for Easter since I was just starting low carb and I was terrified of all the food that was going to be there. I knew there would be a main dish like ham or turkey and then a ton of things I should not eat. So I brought SF cauliflower mash, salad with dressing, SF jello, and whipped cream. When I went back for seconds of my mash there was barely any left I was shocked!!! Everyone wanted the recipe and I was so proud I could get everyone to enjoy a low carb dish. Since that day this has become a staple in my menu plan.

Ingredeints:

1 Head of cauliflower no stems (trimmed well)

4 oz cream cheese

1/4 C Heavy whipping cream

2 T butter

1 C shredded cheddar (divided in half)

6 strips bacon (more If wanted)

1t garlic

1t salt

1 t onion powder

Chicken broth to cook cauliflower in

Directions:

  1. Trim cauliflower as much as possible, the stems give a weird taste. Chop up cauliflower in small bits or use food processor.
  2. Boil chicken broth and add cauliflower. Turn down to medium boil and cook for about 20 minutes or until tender. While waiting fry up bacon until crispy and dice.
  3. Remove and drain in strainer. Either place back in pot or blender (easier) and mix in all ingredients except bacon and 1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese. If by hand you will need to mash for a smooth consistency.
  4. Place in a greased shallow baking dish and  top with remaining cheddar cheese and bacon.
  5. Place oven on High broil and broil for 3-6 minute or until cheese is melted

Serve
