    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.

    I love mashed potatoes. I hardly recognized that I was eating cauliflower. This is now added to my favorite recipe box. Very, very good! - 9/11/13

    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

    I have always hated cauliflower and i'm obsessed with potatoes, and this was just as good as mashed potatoes. AMAZING!! - 9/20/13

    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

    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

    A lot of calories for 1/2 c. of cauliflower. I will just stick to 1/2 c. of roasted potatoes and 1/2 of roasted cauliflower for fewer total calories. - 5/6/21

    If it is to be mashed why is it showing finished and topped with cheese. Poorly presented recipe and the nutrition is off also. - 1/24/17

    How come the cauliflower is still intact in the recipe. Instructions say PUREE.
    I have read several times and the recipe does not look like the photo.

    Coarsely mashing 1/2 or all of the cauli gives this some much needed texture. I'm at a bit of a loss to see how this adds up to all this protein.....unless totally dependent on the cheese for protein...

    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

    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
