  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 2 slices bacon cooked and chopped
  • ½ cup shredded Monterey jack
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar


  • In a skillet, cook bacon until cooked through. Remove and allow to cool. Then chop.
  • In a large bowl place cauliflower with water. Cover and steam in microwave for 5-8 minutes. Drain.
  • Place cauliflower in food processor and blend until consistency of mashed potatoes.
  • Blend in butter, garlic powder, sour cream and chives to the mashed cauliflower. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Spread mashed cauliflower mixture evenly onto the bottom of a greased casserole dish. Top with the chopped bacon and grated cheese.
  • Bake in a 375° oven for 15 minutes, until cheese is melted. Serve warm.

Any grated cheese can be used in place of Monterey and cheddar. 
Cream cheese is a great substitute for the sour cream and helps thicken the mashed cauliflower.
