Faux Twice Baked Potato - LC
I belong to Atkins online and we have a wonderful group that shares life stories regarding weight loss, food and just everyday living. (group name on forum is 50-60's with 30-40 lbs to lose) One of the gals talked alot about Almost Twice Baked Potato and so I finally decided to give it a try. I changed a few things from here . I roasted a turkey the other day and one of them meals I made this was the side along with sauteed snow peas. The dinner was really good and best part is was all Low Carb. If you are trying to lose weight and struggle you should give LC a try. It's a very healthy way to eat and best of all you can lose weight and inches. I have been LC'ing now for almost 2 years, my weight loss has been steady and slow and I have lost 31 lbs....feel fantastic and have lots of clothes that now fit.
1 large head of cauliflower
4 oz. soft cream cheese
3 TBL butter
green onion 3 or 4 tops included
3-5 slices bacon
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese (or colby/jack)
1/2 cup muenster cheese, grated
4 heaping TBL sour cream (more if you like)
Preheat oven 350°, grease a 8x8 baking dish or a 2 qt. casserole dish. Cut the cauliflower and cook in the microwave in a large bowl for about 12-15 minutes. (can cook on top of stove also) until tender. Drain. Cook the bacon until crisp, when done use the grease from the bacon to saute your onion. Put cauliflower in dish and mash, but leave some small chunky pieces, mix in the cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar, and muenster. Chop the bacon and add that and the onions to the cauliflower. Mix well. Bake for 20-40 minutes. The last 10 minutes top with some more cheese and turn to oven til melted. Serve. YUM
I served this with a roasted turkey and salad.
