Cheesy cauliflower and sausage

Posted on: February 16, 2012

I have made this so many times, but I never realized it wasn’t on here!  I thought I should rectify that situation today.

Isn’t it beautiful?  🙂

It’s made out of 4 (well, 5) ingredients, so that qualifies it as easy enough for anyone to make, right?

1 head of cauliflower (or you could probably use a package of frozen)

1 pound sausage (I love it with spicy sausage, but the man likes it less spicy)

1 8 oz package of cream cheese

about 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese (I use half cheddar and half mozarella, but you can use any kind, they’re all good!)

Cut up the cauliflower (unless it’s already cut up), boil or steam it until it’s cooked through, then mash it (with a potato masher or fork – but much easier with a potato masher!) and mix in the cream cheese.  You can also do this step in the food processor.  This is a great way to fool your children (or other picky eaters) into thinking that they are eating mashed potatoes and then surprise them with the truth!

Cook the sausage through.

Shred your cheese (unless it’s already shredded 🙂 )

Now you layer it together – half the cauliflower mixture, half the sausage, half the cheese, and repeat

Bake it at 350 for half an hour, and it should be nice and browned on top and absolutely delicious!

Enjoy 🙂
