Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Core the cauliflower and dice into small pieces. Cook the cauliflower in large pot of boiling salted water until tender 15-20 minutes. Drain well and mash with a potato masher or hand mixer, I leave some small chunks for a little texture.

Mix the cream cheese, sour cream, green onions, Parmesan, butter, salt, pepper, and 3/4 of the bacon into the warm mashed cauliflower.

This is a great way to get picky eaters to eat their vegetables! And also trick your husband to eat lower carb. I can’t tell you how much he raved about this dish and said he would eat it over and over.

My daughter (the pescatarian) also loves this dish so when I make it I separate a couple of portions sans the bacon and bake in a separate dish.
