Cauliflower, Bacon, Cheddar Casserole
1 head cauliflower
4 strips bacon -- or more
2 green onions -- or more
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 stick butter
1 clove garlic -- minced
salt and white pepper -- to taste
1 cup grated cheddar cheese, divided -- or more
Cut up the cauliflower and steam/boil until soft. Adding a splash of
vinegar or some garlic reduces the strong smell. While the
cauliflower is cooking, cut the bacon up into small pieces and fry. Then chop the
onion up fairly fine, including the green portion.
When the cauliflower is soft, drain well. Lightly mash in a colander
to drain extra water. Add the butter and sour cream. Use a mixer to mash
the cauliflower until creamy. Add the bacon
bits, green onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and half of grated cheddar. Mix well
and pour into large casserole dish. Top with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
Bake at 350°F for 20-30 min, or until top begins to brown.
