Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cut the cauliflower into florets, slicing any large florets into smaller pieces. Add the florets to a large bowl with the olive oil, and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper and toss to coat.
  • Transfer the cauliflower to a large baking sheet and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, tossing halfway through and cooking until fork-tender. Leave oven on.
  • While the cauliflower is roasting, cook the bacon in a skillet on the stove until your reach desired crispiness, transfer to a plate and let sit for a couple of minutes before chopping up into pieces.
  • Remove from oven and transfer to a blender or food processor and blend the cauliflower to break down the florets. Add in the sour cream, heavy cream, butter, and remaining spices. Blend until the mixture resembles mashed potatoes.
  • Transfer to a casserole dish and top with cheddar cheese, bacon, and chives and bake for 20 minutes.
