Cooking MethodCasserole


  • 2 pounds cauliflower
  • 1 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cup 2% fat shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 strips thick bacon, coarsely chopped
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper


To Make the Casserole

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a 3-quart baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. In a non-stick fry pan, cook the bacon until crisp, then drain well on paper towels and chop coarsely.

  3. Cut core out of the cauliflower and chop into small florets. Bring a large pot with 3-inches of water to a boil. Place cauliflower into a steamer basket and cook, covered, over the boiling water for about 10 minutes or until very soft.

  4. In a large bowl, combine the sour cream, 1 cup of the Cheddar cheese, half of the green onions, and half of the bacon. Add the cooked cauliflower and toss well. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper and spoon into the prepared baking dish. Top with the remaining cheese.

  5. Bake about 25 minutes until hot and bubbly. Sprinkle with remaining green onion and bacon. Serve warm.

Yum! I make a variation of this recipe using half broccoli and half cauliflower. Instead of using sour cream, I substitute zero fat Greek yogurt, which I find works really well. I add chopped bacon and sometimes I switch it up with chopped ham if that is what I have on hand.

I'm a huge fan of cauliflower and casseroles, so I have a feeling I'd really enjoy this recipe! I love that it's so healthy too!

I'm not a big fan of cauliflower, but this casserole was pretty tasty.

I didn't know I liked cauliflower until I tried this. Seriously. It always intimidated me. But I loved the flavor in this casserole. However, next time, I wouldn't include the bacon. It just didn't go with the cauliflower and added an unwelcome crunch to an otherwise creamy dish.

I love cauliflower in pretty much any form, and this casserole is no exception. I love how it's reminiscent of a loaded baked potato, but oh, so much healthier. I don't miss the carbs or heaviness one bit!

I love anything with cauliflower and cheese, so obviously I loved this recipe.

The flavors of a loaded baked potato were all there, but the cauliflower made it much healthier.

I love cauliflower, but I think this is a great way to get people who don't like it to eat it.

This had all the dressings of a loaded potato casserole, and was quite tasty.
