Just Like Loaded Baked Potatoes Casserole

This recipe is a staple in our household. I used to LOVE a loaded baked potato. But I can honestly say I love this recipe even more.

2 1⁄2 cups cooked cauliflower (I use 1 bag frozen, cooked until tender, in the microwave)
1 cup sour cream
3⁄4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (full-fat works best)
3 green onions, finely chopped
3 -6 slices crumpled cooked bacon or 3 -6 slices turkey bacon
salt and pepper

Chop cooked cauliflower into very small pieces.
Mix sour cream, 1/2 of the green onions, 1/2 of the cheese, 1/2 of the bacon, and salt and pepper to taste in medium bowl.
Stir in the cauliflower. (I use my immersion blender to get smoother)
Place in medium baking dish and sprinkle remaining cheese and bacon on top.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Sprinkle the remaining green onions on top just before serving

I have a quick question. Do you strain/squeeze cauliflower first? Does it turn out good if you don't? Looking to make this in a couple days.

My family has loved this for years. My Mom used to ask me to make it, and she was nowhere near low carb, LOL!

I use fresh cauliflower, cut into florets then nuked til tender, then drained VERY well in a colander. Sometimes I amp up the flavor by using onion dip in place of the sour cream. It's all good!

You're welcome! I'm just not a fan of the frozen cauli - it has a flavor to it I don't care for.

What I do is buy a lot of cauliflower when it is on sale, use the food processor to rice it, bag it up tightly in sandwich or quart bags, and then just pull it out as needed. Saves part of the prep on cook day. I do some bags finer and some in bigger pieces, depending on what I may want to use it for. I just write it on the label.

Yes I do. Thought I had added that, I'm glad you asked. You just take out to use as you need. Keeps for a few months in freezer.

Forgot to ask earlier, does anyone ever add eggs to this casserole? If so, does it affect outcome much?

Speaking of cauliflower, was at Cost Co. today and they had bags of
just cauliflower crowns. It was love at first sight. Oh plus gorgeous
fresh asparagus and mushrooms.

I saw those there last time I went, too, Barbo - and plan to go this morning and get some so I can make cauli mash to go with my chicken-fried chicken cutlets with Carbquik gravy for dinner!

It sounds like I need to join Costco.
From all the posts I've read on here, they have some great deals.

I always go to Sam's cuz Costco is kind of out of my trail I use in the city, but I'm thinking I need to step out of my comfort (driving) zone.

Cauliflower crowns would be great. I've never ever seen them in a store around here.

And speaking of Costco - Went this morning and discovered French's crispy Jalapenos - they're just like French's onions, except they're made with thinly-sliced jalapenos. Oh they're so good and they'd be excellent on top of this casserole, or the traditional green bean casserole we all know and love!

Yes, they do have a bit of wheat flour so a few carbs but when sprinkled over the top of something like this, they wouldn't add much per serving. DH loved them!

Yum, the crispy jalapenos sound great. Making a Costco run this wk. The only bagged veggie I've ever like is the brussel sprouts. I've always gotten a odd taste fr the cauli and broccoli. But when I did buy the cauli, I didn't use it as a loaded bak. potatoe, so just maybe adding all those ingredients would help. I'll have to get a bag and try.
