Creamy cauliflower with sour cream, cheese and bacon.
Loaded Mashed Cauliflower
I made this yesterday instead of mashed potatoes. I was sure when I made it I was going to regret not making the potatoes to go with the chicken roulades I made. Much to my surprise I didn’t miss the potatoes at all. This is a tasty side dish that I will be making again.
It is no where close to the texture of mashed potatoes so don’t be expecting that. When I mashed it I left the cauliflower a little chunky, but small chunky. If I’d of had some chives or green onions that would of been the only thing I would of added. This side dish is a keeper!
- 1 small head cauliflower
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 8 oz. cheddar cheese
- 4 slices crispy bacon
- Break up cauliflower into sections. Add a little water to a pan with the cauliflower and steam for about 10 minutes or until just tender. Drain well.
- Mash the cauliflower with a potato masher. Add the heavy cream, sour cream, butter and 3/4 of the cheese. Mix together. Add salt to taste.
- Pour into an oven safe dish. Top with remaining cheese and cooked bacon pieces.
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes until bubbly around the edges and starting to brown.
