Twice Baked Cauliflower

I love Kalyn's Kitchen! I have been following her for a very long time! Can you believe she has been around since 2005? Pretty amazing! What I love most about her blog is that she focuses on low carb, gluten free, low-glycemic recipes! Perfect for the carb-conscious individual! 


I have so many favorite recipes from her website, but this Twice Baked Cauliflower recipe is an absolute must try! It is rich, decadent, and packs tons of flavor! The sour cream and cream cheese help make the cauliflower incredibly creamy!


Start off by boiling your cauliflower until tender, but not overly soft.


Drain the cauliflower and mash with a potato masher. Leave some chunks so that it resembles lumpy mashed potatoes.


Add turkey bacon, green onions, cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese to the mashed cauliflower.


Stir until everything is well blended.


Spread the mixture in a small casserole dish.


Sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese, turkey bacon and some extra green onions if desired.


Bake 20 minutes covered with foil (or lid); until hot and bubbly. Remove the foil and bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese has melted.


You will have 4 delicious servings! Look at all of that cheesy goodness!


 Serve this side dish with 3/4 of a Lean and another Green and you will have one delicious Lean and Green meal! Enjoy!
