A twist to the twice-baked potato, for those looking for an alternative.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 large head cauliflower, chopped
  • 1 ½ cups shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup bacon bits (such as Hormel®)
  • ½ (8 ounce) package low-fat cream cheese
  • ½ cup low-fat sour cream
  • ¼ cup minced green onions
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Add cauliflower and cook until tender, but not overly soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain well and transfer cauliflower to a large bowl. Mash, using a potato masher, leaving some chunks.
  3. 3 Reserve 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese and 1 tablespoon bacon bits. Mix remaining Cheddar cheese, remaining bacon bits, cream cheese, sour cream, green onions, butter, salt, and pepper into the mashed cauliflower in the bowl. Transfer mixture to an 8-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle reserved Cheddar cheese and bacon bits on top.
  4. 4 Bake in the preheated oven until hot and bubbly, 30 to 35 minutes.

  1. I made this for Thanksgiving and it was phenomenal. I liked this better than mash potatoes!
  2. I followed the recipe as it's written. My hubby and I both thought it was fantastic! I'll be making it again and again! Thank you for sharing!
  3. Great tasting, low carb and gluten free, great. I'm a celiac, so I appreciate recipes that I can prepare and enjoy. Try this one; it's great. My husband doesn't like cauliflower, but he ate 2 helpings.
  4. This was a big hit with my family! I topped it with a light sprinkle of panko to give the top a little texture.
  5. Very good but can the left overs be frozen? I will definitely make again!!!
  6. This was really good, and perfect for my low-carb days. I made a half batch and only need to bake it 20 minutes because of the smaller dish. I do agree the cream cheese should be softened a bit. I ended up cutting mine in small cubes and dumping the hot cauliflower over top to - Read more ...

  8. So good!! Had it for dinner three nights in a row. Husband loved it!!
  9. This was a truly wonderful recipe. I am eating it for breakfast and dinner.
