"A healthy spin on the classic loaded baked potato mash."
Loaded Cauliflower Mash Servings – 6 Prep Time – 15 Minutes Cook Time – 30 Minutes Ingredients:
1 pound cauliflower florettes about half of a large head
4 ounces sour cream
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
4 slices cooked bacon or turkey bacon crumbled
2 tablespoons snipped chives optional
5 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Cut the cauliflower into florettes and add them to a microwave safe bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of water and cover with plastic wrap.
Microwave for 5-8 minutes, depending on your microwave, until completely cooked and tender. Drain the excess water and let sit uncovered for a minute or two. (Alternately, steam your cauliflower the conventional way. You may need to squeeze a little water out of the cauliflower after cooking.)
Add the cauliflower to a food processor and process until fluffy.
Add the butter and sour cream and process until it resembles the consistency of mashed potatoes.
Add in most of the chives, saving some to add to the top later.
Add half of the cheddar cheese and mix by hand.
Season with salt and pepper.
Transfer mixture to buttered baking dish.
Top the loaded cauliflower mash with the remaining cheese, chives and bacon.
Place into preheated oven to melt cheese for 15-20 minutes or place the cauliflower under the broiler for a few minutes.
