How to Make Loaded Cheesy Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Core the cauliflower and dice into small pieces.

Cook the cauliflower florets in large pot of boiling salted water until tender 15-20 minutes. Drain very well.

Place the cauliflower in a large bowl. Mash with a potato masher or hand mixer, I leave some small chunks for a little texture.

Add the cream cheese, sour cream, green onions, Parmesan, butter, salt, pepper, and 3/4 of the bacon into the warm mashed cauliflower.
