Cauliflower Bake

This is the side dish I made for Thanksgiving.  With all the great food there is to eat on that day it's always good to have a Low Carb choice too.  Eating the LC way I have found that eating tooooooooooooo much cheese does make my weight fluctuate, so I try to keep it to a minimum and only have about 2 oz maybe a couple times a week in my salad.  This is an easy recipe and one worth making.  You could change the veggie if you want.  This recipe is based on a potato recipe I used to make.  Sure hope you give it a try.

2  heads of  cauliflower cut into  florets
4 oz shredded mild cheddar cheese
4 oz shredded mozzarella  cheese
4 oz block cream cheese, softened
1/2 - 3/4 cup half and half
2 bunches green onions, sliced (1 1/2 cups)
6 - 8 sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 clove garlic chopped
1/2 stick butter
1/2 can cream of chicken and mushroom soup
4 oz velvetta cheese
1 - 1 1/2 TBL Garlic Herb seasoning
Salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350° .
Steam cauliflower florets until tender. don't over cook it will cook more while in oven.  Drain to be sure you get as much moisture out as possible.
In a large skillet melt the butter, saute the onion and then add the garlic.  Add the cream cheese , when that is almost melted add 1/2 the half and half and add the rest of the cheeses and the rest of the half and half.  Cook until all melted.  Crumble the bacon into cheese mixture.  Butter a casserole dish and add the cauliflower and then pour cheese over the top.  Mix so it's all combined.  Top with LC pita pieces.

Cover dish with foil or put lid on if it has one   and bake for 25 minutes; remove foil and continue to bake until cheese is brown and bubbly.
