Ingredients

  • 4

    slices center cut bacon

  • 6

    cups (about 24 oz) cauliflower florets

  • 3

    cloves crushed garlic

  • cup 1% buttermilk

  • 1

    tablespoon whipped butter

  • ¾

    tsp kosher salt

  • fresh black pepper, to taste

  • 2

    tablespoons minced fresh chives, divided

  • ¼

    cup shredded reduced fat shredded cheddar

Directions

Cook the bacon in a skillet until crisp; set aside on a paper towel then crumble. Fill a large pot with water, bring to a boil and add cauliflower and garlic. Boil until the cauliflower is soft, about 15-20 minutes. Drain, and return to the pot. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Add the buttermilk, butter, salt and pepper to the cauliflower and purée with a hand blender. If you don’t own a hand blender, a regular blender would work fine as well. Mix in 1 tbsp of the chives and transfer to 4 individual casseroles (3/4 cups each) or one 8 x 8 casserole dish and top with cheddar and crumbled bacon. Bake in the oven until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes then top with remaining chives.
