Played with some cauliflower and cheese today and came up with a delicious Mac and cheese replacement.
Low Carb Faux “Mac” and Cheese – Cauliflower Mac and Cheese
1 med cauliflower, cut into florets and steamed
1 cup shredded Havarti
1 1/2 cup shredded old cheddar
2 tbs cream cheese
1 cup heavy cream
1 tbs Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbs fried shallots
Make sure you squeeze the excess water out of the cauliflower. Add to a bowl and cut into sort of small “macaroni-like” pieces. Combine the eggs, cream cheese, cream, mustard, salt and pepper. Add liquid to cauliflower. Add Havarti and 1 cup cheddar (reserve 1/2 cup for topping). Stir to combine. Transfer to greased casserole dish. Smooth the top and sprinkle the fried shallots and cheddar on top.
Bake at 350F for 30-40 mins until golden brown on the top. Let set 10-20 mins before slicing and eating (if you can wait. I never can).
