Cauliflower "Mac" & Cheese Casserole

Submitted by: BELLASMOMMA
Cauliflower

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    Kosher salt, as needed, plus 1/2 teaspoon
    Vegetable Oil Spray
    1 Large Head Cauliflower, cut into small florets
    3/4 cup heavy cream (may use sugar-free soy milk
    2 ounces cream cheese, cut into small pieces
    1.5 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, plus 1/2 cup for topping the casserole
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions

Equipment: 8 x 8 inch baking dish

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Season the water with salt. Spray the baking dish with vegetable oil spray.

2. Cook cauliflower in the boiling water until crisp tender, about 5 minutes.

3. Drain well and pat between several layers of paper towels to dry. Transfer the cauliflower to the baking dish and set aside.

4. Bring the cream to a simmer in a small saucepan and whisk in the cream cheese until smooth.

5. Stir in the 1.5 cups of cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic powder and whisk until the cheese melts, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, pour over the cauliflower, and stir to combine.

6. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese and bake until browned and bubbly hot, about 15 minutes, and serve.

***It may change your carb content but I add different types of shredded cheese with the cheddar and top with cooked bacon before serving.

Number of Servings: 8

    I made this tonight but I didn't have any heavy creme so I used 1% milk. It tasted great! I made a roux in place of the cream and cream cheese. It was delicious. MMMMMM - 2/8/10

  • I didn't have any heavy cream, but the 2% milk I used worked out well. It didn't really need the bread crumb topping I usually use when I make macaroni and cheese, but the person who suggested bacon may be on to something! ;-) - 10/27/14

  • This is one of my favorite dishes with cauliflower. I like a little bacon on top, too. I've used this for many family get togethers. Always pass the recipes to others! - 6/23/11
