This is such a good dish to make and eat. It is just like my loaded potatoes only made with cauliflower.

This is one good, creamy casserole.  Of course when you add bacon everything is always better. I just loved how all the flavors work so well together. Making this one again soon. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
