We wouldn’t recommend this as an everyday dish, but if you are crazily craving a plate of loaded potato skins, this veggie dish might be just what you need to keep it cleaner and not go on a binge! This is a great lower carb side. Combine with a protein and you have a great Eat by Color meal!
Replacing the sour cream, mayo, bacon and cheese with a lighter version will help keep this under control and still satisfy!
1 large head of Cauliflower cut into bite size pieces (approx 6 cups)
6-8 strips of bacon cooked and crumbled (Cooked in oven at 400° for 20 mins)
6 Tbs chopped Chives
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1/2 cup Sour Cream (swap Plain Greek Yogurt and drive up the Protein Contest of this dish)
2 cups Colby Jack Cheese ( may use cheddar)
8 oz container sliced mushrooms
Preheat oven to 425°
In a large pot boil water and cook Cauliflower for 8 – 10 minutes, drain and let cool.
