Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets

  • 8 slices turkey bacon

  • 1 (8 ounce) package fat-free cream cheese, softened

  • ½ cup reduced-fat sour cream

  • ¼ cup lowfat cottage cheese

  • 1 ½ cups shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, divided

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Add cauliflower, bring back to a boil, and cook over medium heat until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and transfer to a bowl.

  3. Line a microwave-safe plate with paper towels; arrange turkey bacon on the paper towels. Top with more paper towels. Microwave on high until bacon is crisp, 1 to 2 minutes. Cool and crumble.

  4. Mix cauliflower with crumbled bacon, cream cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, and 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese using an electric mixer until evenly combined. Transfer to a 9x13-inch baking dish; top with remaining 1 cup Cheddar cheese.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted on top, 15 to 20 minutes.
