This Will Become the Favorite of Veggie Hater’s for Sure!

I know a lot of people who have their doubts about cauliflower! I think it’s because they’ve only had them steamed and not with the right seasonings. This recipe will give you such a delicious dish that everyone who has a bite will immediately turn into a cauliflower lover!

This recipe has received wonderful comments over at Pharr Away. Let’s have a look at what the readers have had to say about it:


Ha ha , I love the sneakiness! That’s the only way I’ll get a few of these people to eat it. I am funny about cauliflower too. It looks so good though. I’ll give it a shot.

One of my goals this month is to add some new recipes into my meal plan and I think I may just try this. Thanx for sharing!




1 lb (1 head) cauliflower florets

4 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided, (extra to sprinkle on top, as desired)

4 oz NC Red Heifer Cheddar Cheese, divided (from my weekly Backyard Produce basket)!

4 oz cream cheese, softened

2 tablespoons heavy cream

1/2 small sweet onions, chopped

3 sliced bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled

1/4 tsp garlic powder

Salt & pepper to taste




Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 2-3 quart casserole dish with cooking spray.

Steam cauliflower florets until tender.

Over low-medium heat cream together the cheeses, cream cheese, and heavy cream.  Stir in chopped onions, crumbled bacon, and garlic powder. Set aside.

Drain any liquid from steamed cauliflower, add to cheese mixture and combine. Mash with a potato masher. Season to taste.

Pour into casserole dish and top with shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Then remove foil and continue to bake until cheese is brown and bubbly!





Quick Tip: You can simply double the ingredients if you need more (this recipe serves 4).

Thanks to Pharr Away for this creative cauliflower concoction!
