Default Great!

I just made this tonight for lunch tomorrow (Sunday). I am trying to figure out how to convince my eight kids that they won't like it, so that we adults will get some of it, because I got a taste of it and it was wonderful! I am making sure to tell them that it is made with cauliflower, since they all don't think they like that!

Works well with or without the mushrooms or onions.

Default Mock Potatoes Made With Cauliflower ?

This is excellent but wonder if I put in an egg or two would it come out more like quiche? so it could be eaten from the muffin, etc. paper things you use in the tins.

I tried this recipe, and it is fabulous!!!! I did not use the mushrooms or the onions, used parmesian instead of romano, and only sprinkled the bacon on the top. My husband said that if I hadn't told him it was cauliflower, he's not so sure he would have been able to tell the difference!

I made this tonight, and it was wonderful

I did adapt the recipe slightly - didn't add the mushrooms and put some grated mozzarella cheese in instead of the Romano (no idea what Romano is*, but the mozzarella definitely worked in its place), and I only used a desertspoon of soured cream.

* have not come across this cheese before, don't think it's available in the UK

It tasted just like Colcannon Potatoes - which we obviously can't eat on a low carb woe, but by using Don's recipe, we can!

To make an even more authentic Colcannon, I shall make it again at the weekend using savoy cabbage. May also leave out the soured cream so that it ends up thicker. Will report back

Hi Don,

Made your recipe for "Faux Twice Baked Potato" and was very surprised at the taste. Seeing that potatoes are out of our life style, this was GREAT!!!

One quick question--could you make "faux mashed potatoes" leaving out the onion, bacon & bacon grease, & mushrooms?

Congratulations on the weight loss and if you have anymore good recipes, please post them.

Of course you can leave those items out but it will change the taste of the recipe a lot. Especially if you leave out the onions. I do leave out the bacon grease sometimes and that really doesn't make much difference.

As for other recipes check out the recipe section on my web site at, they are all recipes that I've tested personally and really like.

Default Breakfast twist on faux twice baked potato


Thanks Don! I tried the original recipe last night and it was awesome!

This morning my girlfriend had an idea on how to use this recipe for breakfast. All she did was add whole eggs to a portion of the faux potato casserole and mix until it was the consistency of pancake batter. On medium-low heat drop 2"-3" diameter portions of the batter and cook just as you would a pancake. We used a totally non-stick pan without any oil or butter and they browned just great without sticking. Be careful if you use butter not to burn it!

Speaking for myself it is just incredible. Give it try and let me know what you think.

well, i made it! it was a big hit with me, however my family did not care for it at all (they are not veggie fans). oh well, more for me. next time i'll make a smaller batch and add the mushrooms and onions (i had left these out hoping the fam would try). i'm sure the green onions give it a wonderful flavor!

til we meet again--
