  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a large, square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Put cauliflower in a microwave-safe bowl and cook in microwave oven until tender, about 6 minutes.
  3. Blend cauliflower in a food processor until smooth; add sour cream, yogurt, and butter and process again until smooth.
  4. Mix blended cauliflower mixture in a bowl with 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese, bacon bits, chives, garlic, and black pepper; spread into the prepared baking dish and top with remaining Cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake in preheated oven on the middle rack until cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Switch oven to 'broil' and continue baking until the top is golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes more.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Great to add 1/2 cup caramelized onions into mixture for great flavoring.

This is wonderful side! I admit that I do double everything except the cauliflower. Doing so makes the dish rich and creamy.

Liked it, but did not feel it was worth all the ingredients & efforts for the end result. Still love the old school cheese sauce over florets better!

Great basic recipe! If you want to make it lower carb and Atkins/keto friendly use real bacon, and double the amount, and omit the yogurt and substitute full fat cream cheese. Thanks!

When I first took it out of the oven I thought it was too watery. I put it in a bowl to let it cool, and when it was at a temperature I could eat it, it had thickened up and was the perfect con...

I don’t puree it in a food processor, I use a hand mixer to keep a little texture. I also used Parmesan cheese & no yogurt. I could eat this every day. We’ve mixed up the cheeses too using ...

Will definitely mask email it again.

I don't really measure as I'm cooking, but I made this as the recipe stated -- AMAZING. SO much better than frozen mashed cauliflower and the family enjoyed them just as much as mashed potatoes....
