Twice Baked Cauliflower


I'm the girl who promised her husband in the first week of marriage that she would never eat vegetables. I was a grown up now and I was determined to stick to my guns on this one. As the years have passed I've realized the error of my ways. I'm trying to eat more vegetables- of course I'm always drawn to the veggie dishes that have more calories than a gallon of ice cream. Oh well. So of course I was drawn to this recipe for Twice Baked Cauliflower. Twice Baked Potatoes are my very favorite and if these promised to taste even remotely like them I was sure I would love it. And love it I did. With this lower calorie version of my favorite dish I was able to eat to my little hearts content and only feel slightly guilty- as opposed to the mucho guilt I feel when I eat potatoes. This is a perfect side dish to convince your kids (and self) that vegetables can taste good too!

Twice Baked Cauliflower

1 head of cauliflower
4 oz. cream cheese
2 Tbs. butter
1 T. Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup crumbled bacon
1 cup grated cheese

Cut stem and core from cauliflower- cut into small pieces and cook in a large pot of boiling water. Let cook until tender. Drain well and mash with a potato masher. Mix in cream cheese, butter, Parmesan, bacon and 1/2 cup cheese. Spread evenly in a baking dish and top with remaining cheese. Broil until cheese is bubbling.
