4 Servings 25 min Cook
16 Oz Bacon
6 1/2 Cup chopped, (1/2" pieces) Cauliflower
3 Cloves, minced Garlic
1/3 Cup Buttermilk
1 Tbsp Butter
3/4 Tsp Salt
1 Dash Pepper
2 Tbsp chopped Chives
1/4 Cup, shredded Cheddar Cheese
Cook the bacon in a skillet until crisp; set aside on a paper towel then crumble.
Fill a large pot with water, bring to a boil.
Add cauliflower and garlic.
Boil until the cauliflower is soft, about 15-20 minutes.
Drain, and return to the pot.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Add the buttermilk, butter, salt and pepper to the cauliflower and purée with a hand blender.
If you don't own a hand blender, a regular blender would work fine as well.
Mix in 1 tbsp of the chives and transfer to 4 individual casseroles (3/4 cups each) or one 8 x 8 casserole dish.
Top with cheddar and crumbled bacon.
Bake in the oven until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes then top with remaining chives.
