  • 1 tablespoon whipped butter
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
  • fresh black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives, divided
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced fat shredded cheddar

  2. Preheat oven to 350F.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add califlower and garlic. Cook for about 15-20 minutes until tender. Drain water and return cauliflower to pot and add buttermilk and butter.
  4. Using a hand blender, puree cauliflower mixture until smooth. Stir in 1 tbsp of chives and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Pour puree evenly to 4 individual casseroles or one 8×8 casserole dish. Top with cheddar cheese and crumbled bacon. Bake for about 5 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and has melted. Top with remaining chives and serve warm.
  6. Makes 4 servings
