Crack Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole

Crack Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole from 101 Cooking For Two

Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole… a lower carb healthier version of “cheesy potatoes AKA Crack Potatoes… now crack cauliflower…

This is one of those recipes I have done so many times that I never measure anything. But to write it down, I did measure tonight. Actually, it was the best one in a long time. Maybe I don’t measure well just by sight.

In our old high carb days, we made “cheesy potatoes”.  This is the low carb version of that. It’s fast and easy. It also is made with things we usually have on hand.

What you will need.
 microwave frozen Cauliflower

Cook entire bag of cauliflower in microwave. I use a covered dish with about a tablespoon of water on the “frozen vegetable” setting. Or follow instructions on package.

cutting up green onion

Slice green onions. Move cauliflower to mixing bowl and mash with potato masher. You could also use a mixer or food processor but you are NOT trying to cream this. Add cheddar cheese, sour cream, scallions, salt and pepper.

mix well and put in dish

Mix well and move to baking pan. May be refrigerated or cooked now.  Cook in preheated oven 375 convection until top is browned. About 20 minutes. (you may adjust the temp depending on your needs for timing or cooking with other foods)

cook until golden brown

Try to let set for 5 minutes before serving. Heat leftovers in oven. Much better than microwaved.

      Most things “can” be cooking in a crock pot. Since nothing is raw except the onion (which doesn’t matter much) it is safe. So you just need to get it hot enough to melt and combine ingredients. I will just guess 1 hour on high and then check it since it may take 2 hours. If you try it please post your results. We like the browned top so I won’t be doing it.

    Very tasty! I was in a bit of a hurry, so I put in in the microwave for 5 minutes, stirred it, and then into the oven for 5 to brown the top. My dad – who does not like cauliflower, liked this. He likes a bit of crunch so I sprinkled some panko crumbs on top and hit broil for 1 more minute. Came out great.
