    2 Tbsp bacon bits
    1 tsp minced garlic

2. Preheat oven to 400F.
3. *Process cauliflower until smooth with a food processor. Add yogurt, sour cream, and butter and process until creamy and smooth.
4. Mix remaining ingredients together in a medium bowl.
5. Use cooking spray on 4 seven-ounce ramekins or other small oven-safe dishes and spoon mixture into dishes.
6. Place all small dishes on a cookie sheet for easier handling.
7. Bake for 15 minutes on middle rack and then **broil for a few minutes until top is golden brown.

    The calorie count is off on this recipe - nutrition is based on one-half Cup cauliflower for entire recipe, rather than one-half a cauliflower. Needs to be re-worked. - 11/13/14

    only problem, it doesn't say how to incorporate the cheddar mixture. I put it on top for the second baking, mixing it in probably would be better. - 10/30/13

  • sounds like a great recipe, however reduced fat and low fat and no fat are not "primal". limit your dairy but if you're going to use it use the real thing! Full fat traditional greek yogurt is delicious. - 12/12/14

  • I know it's all the rage to use low-fat yogurt, low-fat cheese, and low-fat sour cream. What about all the sodium in this recipe? My meal-tracking shows that I don't get enough fat or protein, but I get an over-abundance of sodium and preservatives. wth? - 11/24/14

  • I used the entire head of cauliflower and mashed half like the recipe stated, so I could have some "chunks" and added a small head of broccoli to it too. Doubled the yogurt instead of adding sour cream. I used nonfat plain Greek. I also saved some cheese to sprinkle on top before I baked it. YUM! - 11/23/14

    I have made a cauliflower cheese bake for years. I used it to sub for mac and cheese. This sounds equally delicious. It is now in my recipe book and will definitely be fixed for dinner very soon, - 6/29/14

    YUM. I use cauliflower as a substitute for potatoes a lot, but this is BY FAR the best recipe yet! Excellent and easy way to sub out a veggie for a starch, and boy is it tasty! Adding this to the permanent rotation! - 2/15/14
