Default Faux Twice Baked Potato

Here is my version of Mock Mashed Potatoes. It is a casserole dish that is as good the second day as it is the first and I don't believe anyone would know it's not made with potatoes if you didn't tell them. I've really missed mashed potatoes and now I don't have to.

Here is a link to my PDF version which has nutrition information included.
<a href=""target="_blank">Faux Twice Baked Potatoes</a>



Faux Twice Baked Potato

1-head of Cauliflower (Approx 2lb)
c. sour cream
4-oz - cream cheese
c. minced green onions
stick of soft butter
2 fresh mushrooms diced
salt and pepper to taste
cup of Romano cheese
6-slices of cooked and crumbled bacon 2-Tbs. of bacon grease

Shredded Cheddar
2-slices of cooked and crumbled bacon on top

Boil cauliflower approx. 20 to 30 minutes until tender, drain well. Fry bacon until crisp and then crumble it. Save the grease. In a large bowl, combine the cauliflower, cream cheese, of the butter, salt, pepper, romano cheese, c. sour cream, c. minced green onions, 2 fresh mushrooms diced, bacon grease and the bacon bits. Mash it all together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

I mash it in my Kitchen Aid Mixer.

Put it in a buttered 8 X 8 casserole dish. Cover with the cheddar cheese. Top it off with the bacon pieces. And cut up small pieces of remaining butter and scatter it on top lightly.

Place in a preheated 350 oven and bake until all the cheese has melted. Approximately 20 minutes. Garnish with chives if desired.

Default Serving size

When I make it in an 8X8 dish like the picture in the PDF file I cut it into 9 pieces. I suspect that would be about a cup, maybe a bit less, but I've never measured it.

Enjoy, I just took some out of the oven for tonight.

I made this last night, I forgot the recipe, so I just made it up. I didn't use any mushrooms, I used Parm. cheese instead of romano, and I forgot the cream cheese. But it was delicious!!! DH had 2 servings. I only had 3/4 of a bag of frozen cauliflower, so I decreased the amounts of everything, and I made it into 4 servings. Yummy!!!!!!! Better than regular Mashed Potatoes!!

This is AWESOME!!!

I have tried several recipes for faux mashed potatoes but this one is the best by far. I froze the leftovers in individual servings and it reheated fine.

Thanks a million!

Thumbs up

I'm new to this site, have just begun the low-carb way of eating (1 week) and have had such a great time getting recipes and trying things out. I had a bbq today (15 people) and made the faux twice baked dish - it was a hit! I didn't fool anyone, I didn't try and pass them off as potatoes, I just said it was a new dish and it was GREAT! I will definately make these again!

I've made this a few times and I LOVE it! My non-LCing, normally potato loving family loves it too. I don't do the bacon and mushrooms or onion. I make it like our traditional mashed potatoes used to be. Salt, pepper and chives (sometimes a little paprika). It's great twice baked and not twice baked (from the pot to the plate if you are in a hurry). The first time I ate it I felt so NAUGHTY! It really fools you into thinking it's the real thing!

If you are wondering wether or not to make it-- MAKE IT!! You won't regret it!
