  • Place turkey bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels and crumble.

  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower, cover, and steam until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Combine sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl; add cauliflower, 1/2 of the bacon, 1 cup Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, mushrooms, and 3 tablespoons chives and mix well. Transfer mixture to the prepared baking dish and top with remaining bacon and cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbling and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle remaining chives over casserole.

I subbed shallot for chives (what I had on hand), subbed cheddar for colby-jack, regular bacon instead of turkey bacon, and omitted mushrooms. OMG, this was amazing. My 4 year old ate half of it in one sitting, then asked me to make it again the next day. Read More

Sauce too rich. Cauliflower does not pair well with mushrooms. Read More

I made this recipe exactly as written, except I used regular bacon, not turkey bacon. It was so delicious, even my husband, who "hates" cauliflower, ate a big serving! I didn't tell him what it was, just served it and he ate it all! That alone makes it 5 stars for me. I will definitely make it again. I especially loved the mini-bellas, chopped into the mix. Very very good! Read More

Really tasty. I had been looking for something with chicken cauliflower and cheese so I adapted this. I had cooked chicken tenders which I reheated in olive oil with the garlic salt and pepper and added some rosemary and crushed red pepper (and a smidge of turmeric). Once heated through removed from the heat added the sour cream and mayo and cheese then cauliflower and etc per the recipe. I didn't use mushrooms either. Two finicky teenagers and myself gobbled over half of it in about 20 minutes. Delicious!! Read More

Very good! I used regular bacon. I used green onion as the scallions didn t look good at the store. I used the Monterey cheese with some cheddar mixed in. Thumbs up from my husband and kids. It reminded me of a baked potato but with cauliflower instead. I will make this again. Read More
