Clean and Low-Carb Twice Baked Mashed Cauliflower with bacon and cheese


The potato version of this recipe used to be one of our go-to's when we were having people over for dinner. I loved it because I could make the "mashed potatoes" the night before, assemble the casserole in the morning and then just have to bake it when guests arrived. And everyone loved it. So I decided to clean it up by replacing the white potatoes with mashed cauliflower. 

I made this yesterday- a day we hadn't eaten great - clean but not enough veggies and too many nuts and seeds. So I deliberately tried to keep the high fat ingredients to a minimum and it still tasted great. Feel free to replace the plain Greek yogurt with butter, sour cream or cream cheese. Also, you can add more cheese and bacon on top if you want to really impress someone. 

Hubby is still iffy on mashed cauliflower and he loved this so its a keeper!



























Twice Baked Mashed Cauliflower with Bacon and Cheese

by MamaChanty
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes in oven
Keywords: bake side gluten-free low-carb paleo cauliflower
Ingredients (Serves 3 - 4)
  • 1 medium head cauliflower, washed and cut in florets
  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 Tbsp plain unsweetened High Protein Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • Sprinkle of pepper, garlic powder and parsley
  • 2 green onion spears, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cheese, grated
  • 1 Tbsp cooked crumbled bacon
Instructions
Place cauliflower in a large pot covered with water. Bring to boil.
Reduce to a gentle boil and cook with lid on for 8 - 10 minutes. Cauliflower should be tender but not mushy. Remove from heat. Drain well.
Put the cauliflower back in pot with lid on and let stand for 5 minutes. This ensures the cauliflower doesn't get watery. Don't skip this step.
Place cooked cauliflower in the food processor with Parmesan Cheese, Yogurt, salt, pepper, garlic powder and parsley. Pulse until it becomes whipped/consistency of mashed potatoes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place mashed cauliflower in a greased casserole dish. Top with onion, bacon and cheese.
Bake for 15 minutes until heated through and then broil for a couple of minutes to crisp up cheese.
If you make the mashed cauliflower ahead of time and it has been refrigerated bake for 30-35 minutes and then broil for a couple of minutes.

  3. I don't have a food processor. Can I use a manual potato masher on the boiled cauliflower?

    1. Sorry - don't think that will work. I've tried it before and it doesn't get smooth. But let me know if you have better success with it.

    2. I used a stick blender - worked well with little effort and fewer dishes to wash

    3. I have always used a hand mixer...works perfectly fine.

  10. I have been casting spells for many years and I have helped many people, I might be able to help you too. I am honest, and I genuinely care for all the clients who choose me to cast a spell for them.
    If you have any questions about Love, Money, curse, protection, bad luck, divorce, court cases, or about me please call or email me. I really want you to feel comfortable before moving forward with any spells, or other services. I will take the time to explain things to you and provide you with honest advice, to what is best for your situation. I will not pressure you into having a spell cast, I will leave that decision up to you, and when or if you decide to move forward, I might be able to help you.
    I will respect your Privacy. I will not seek to obtain any of your personal information beyond what you might voluntarily offer and all information you might give me including emails, phone numbers and photos will remain private and confidential.
    I perform my Rituals only at night between the hours of 0.00 - 0.59 (South African time) lasting 1 hour but of course, this depends on the nature of the ritual, some rituals might take hours and can also become necessary to be performed at specials places like; flowing streams, cemeteries and other places dictated by the gods.
    I do not want anyone to be under any illusions about my spells and its numerous rituals. Real and effective Voodoo is no child's play, it is expensive because, after the rituals, I will have to destroy all the materials involved by fire and the ashes scattered over a flowing stream or river.
