Twice Baked Cauliflower
Ok, I have to admit this isn’t the most appetizing looking dish but it tastes absolutely amazing. It’s seriously one of the best things I have made in a long time. When I told Joel I was making it for dinner he was quite skeptical and wondered why I didn’t just make it with potatoes. I told him to buck up and deal with it and that he would like it. And I was totally right. It was creamy, cheesy and tangy, a bit salty and crispy. It was deliciousness.

I’m excited to make and share this at Thanksgiving this year. Although when we have Thanksgiving at Joel’s family, corn casserole is usually the top request from my recipes. I guess I kind of have a thing for cheesy vegatables.

recipe from Kalyn’s Kitchen

1 large head cauliflower
4 oz. low fat cream cheese
1/2 cup low fat sour cream
1/4 cup minced green onions
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (If you only have finely grated Parmesan, use a bit less)
6 slices reduced fat bacon, cooked until very crisp, fat blotted with paper towel and then crumbled
1 cup reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut out stem and core from cauliflower, and cut into small pieces. Cook in large pot of boiling salted water until cauliflower is tender, but not overly soft. Drain well and mash with potato masher, leaving some chunks. Mix in light cream cheese, light sour cream, green onion, Parmesan, and 3/4 of the crumbled bacon.

2. Spread evenly in a medium-sized glass casserole dish. Sprinkle with low-fat cheddar cheese and reserved bacon. Bake 30-35 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
