Loaded Cauliflower Bake is unbelievably tasty, full of fantastic flavor, and tastes like loaded potatoes, but without all the carbs! Cauliflower, bacon, cheese, and green onions make a wonderful combination!

Ingredients:

-4 slices center cut bacon
-6 cups (about 24 oz) cauliflower florets
-3 cloves crushed garlic
-1/3 cup 1% buttermilk
-1 tablespoon whipped butter
-3/4 tsp kosher salt
-fresh black pepper, to taste
-2 tablespoons minced fresh chives, divided
-1/4 cup shredded reduced fat shredded cheddar

Directions:

Cook the bacon in a skillet until crisp; set aside on a paper towel then crumble.
Fill a large pot with water, bring to a boil and add cauliflower and garlic. Boil until the cauliflower is soft, about 15-20 minutes. Drain, and return to the pot.

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Add the buttermilk, butter, salt and pepper to the cauliflower and purée with a hand blender. If you don’t own a hand blender, a regular blender would work fine as well. Mix in 1 tbsp of the chives
and transfer to 4 individual casseroles (3/4 cups each) or one 8 x 8 casserole dish and top with cheddar and crumbled bacon. Bake in the oven until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes then top with remaining chives.
