Twice Baked Cauliflower

I made this bc I didn't want to have potatoes over and over and over. And no, it's not twice "baked", but it's twice "cooked", and that didn't have the same ring, lol.

My hubby took one bite and said it was awesome.


Awesome. :-)

one large head of cauliflower, broken down into pieces
1/2 cup light sour cream
1/2 cup light cream cheese (neufchatel cheese)
7 slices of bacon
1 cup shredded cheese (I used cheddar/jack)
1/2 cup sliced green onion
Mrs. Dash (whatever you like - I used garlic and herb)


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2) Take cream cheese out of refrigerator so it can come to room temp.

3) Boil cauliflower until it's soft, then drain, and mash it in a big bowl.

4) Add to the bowl: cream cheese, sour cream, most of the bacon, most of the green onion, salt, pepper, and Mrs. Dash. Add the seasonings to your taste.

5) Mix all together until WELL incorporated. (it will look like cottage cheese, haha)

6) Top with the cheese, the rest of the bacon, and the rest of the green onion.

7) Bake for 30 mins, until cheese is bubbly.

This recipe made 5 cups, and for each cup serving:
Calories - 228
Protein - 13
Carbs - 13

A one-cup serving of the roasted potatoes that I make has 38 g of carbs. That's the huge appeal of this recipe! Plus, it's totally yummy...


  1. Oh I'm going to try the cauliflower will be great since I'm trying to eat lower carbs for awhile
