    2 Tbsp bacon bits
    1 tsp minced garlic

Directions

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

  • 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
