Ingredients

4 c
cauliflower, cooked

CHEESE SAUCE

4 oz
cream cheese
3 Tbsp
butter
1/3 c
low-carb milk or whipping cream
1 Tbsp
water
1/4 tsp
salt
1/8 tsp
white pepper
2/3 c
shredded monterey or cheddar cheese

TOPPING

2/3 c
grated sharp cheddar cheese
4 slice
cooked bacon, chopped
2 Tbsp

Step-By-Step

1Cheese Sauce: In nonstick pan, combine cream cheese, butter, milk, water, salt and white pepper. Whisk occasionally. Stir in Cheddar cheese until it melts and sauce is smooth. Add extra water if necessary 1 tablespoon at a time. ***Cheese sauce can be poured over cooked broccoli or cauliflower for a side dish. You can double the recipe very easily.
2Chop Cauliflower into smaller pieces, but not too small.
In large bowl, combine cauliflower and Cheese Sauce. Place mixture in 2 qt. shallow casserole dish.
3Topping: In small bowl combine 2/3 cup grated cheddar cheese, bacon and parsley. Sprinkle over the top of the cauliflower.
4Bake at 350 degrees about 15 minutes or until slightly browned and bubbly. You could put the casserole under the broiler for 2 minutes to brown the cauliflower a little more.
