Default Mashed Cauli

I'm sure most of you have tried the maahed cauliflower in place of mashed potatoes, but I could never really get it to taste right for my liking, it still had that odd cauli flavor. I tried something different tonight. I greased a cake pan, cut up a whole head of cauli and layered it on the bottom. I then put a few slices of onion and garlic on top and baked it for 30-40 min until it waa soft. I put it all in a food processor along with cream cheese, cheddar, sour cream, salt pepper, and butter. Turned on the FP until it was smooth. Added some bacon bits, it was wonderful and my wife who doesn't like cauliflower thought so as well

This seems to take that odd cauliflower taste that keeps me from enjoying boiled and mashed cauliflower. I may cut back a tad on the garlic next time, I used a good tablespoon full of jarred minced garlic.

I bake my cauli-mash and it adds a lovely roast-y taste!

Try the roasted florets, too. YUMMY!

Had the cauliflower tonight and must say it was good. The make was an interesting watch. Had chopped onion and garlic salt baked with the cauliflower, because that's what we had. Not owning a food processor or a potato masher, a perforated spoon and a hand blender were used to 'mash' before adding other ingredients. As soon as all the tears of laughter were dried, cauliflower was placed in pot of boiling water to soften then returned to bowl and blender. Other ingredients were added, with exception that cream cheese turned into cottage cheese by the time BH got to the fridge and forgot the cheddar. More tears of laughter from hand blender. Finally looked and found the old Osterizer, that was thought to be broken and thrown away, to finish the job. Put a helping on a plate, put a dollop of butter and broken up bacon on it, and nuked long enough to almost melt the butter. Salt and pepper and dad gum was it good with baked chicken thigh, broccoli, and salad. Put a few drops of ranch dressing on it and imagined it being perfect with the missing cheddar.

After supper, got all the cauliflower flung from the hand blender off the walls and cabinet top appliances. Now I gotta figure out where the spike to 146 came from, retesting showed it was a spike. Guess it was from extra ranch dressing and cottage cheese, but cottage cheese usually doesn't bother me too bad.

Taking some to work tonight and will test after eating. Will not have salad so only ranch dressing will be the few drops I put on the mashed cauliflower. Plan on demolishing the rest off in the morning by adding chunks of cheddar and frying like a hash brown. If get spike by the rest of it I'm going to assume the cottage cheese.

I think Mrs. Mark must be well healed by now, or all that laughing woulda been pulling her incision!

I gotta try this method too - just gotta go shopping first & that comes tomorrow.

She was getting mad and swearing to never bake it again I was the one laughing, adding to her agitation. Glad she's not well enough to swing the skillet yet. I will buy a food processor in the morning. Any recommendations, or will Wally World have a good one with all the features?

I knew you are an ornery pup, Sir Mark. She may sneak up on you one of these days when she IS strong enough to swing the skillet! LOL!
