Loaded Mashed Cauliflower

Loaded Mashed Cauliflower


  • ▢4 slices center cut bacon
  • ▢6 cups about 24 oz cauliflower florets
  • ▢3 cloves crushed garlic
  • ▢1/3 cup 1% buttermilk
  • ▢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


  • 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.
