JUST LIKE STUFFED BAKED POTATOES
16 ounce package frozen cauliflower
8 ounce cream cheese, softened
8 ounce cheddar cheese, shredded
4 green onions, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 pieces bacon, chopped and fried until crisp
Cook the cauliflower until soft, about 8-10 minutes; drain very well and break up the florets a bit with a spoon. It's also very good if you leave the cauliflower a little chunky. Put in a greased 8 x 8" baking pan or a 2-quart casserole. Mix in the cream cheese, cheddar, green onion, salt, pepper and bacon. Dust the top with paprika, if desired. Bake at 350º for 20-40 minutes, until browned and bubbly. Or, microwave, loosely covered, for about 40 minutes on 50% power, turning the dish after 20 minutes.

You can use up to 2 pounds of cauliflower and there will still be plenty of sauce and cheese to go around. With 2 pounds of cauliflower the count would be:

This is very yummy and an all-time favorite. It goes very well with my Grandma's Rouladen and is very nice with grilled or broiled salmon. My friends and I call this dish JLSBP for short.
