Faux Mac and Cheese
1 bag (14 oz) frozen cauliflower
2 cups cheese, shredded (I used half sharp and half 2%)
½ c. egg substitute
1/4 cup milk/cream or Fat Free evaporated milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. white pepper
1 c. bread crumbs
1/2c. French’s onion rings, crushed
½ tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
1 Tbsp. butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place bag of cauliflower in microwave and cook at 1 minute intervals until hot (rotating and turning over with each-took me about 4 intervals) Drain in colander and cool slightly.
In medium mixing bowl, add cheese(s) egg substitute, milk and seasoning. Mix well.
In a small bowl, mix ingredients for topping. Mix well.
Chop cauliflower into pieces that would resemble the size of elbow macaroni (I used a pair of kitchen shears in bowl). Add to egg cheese mixture and mix well.
Place cauliflower mixture into greased 1 quart casserole and top with bread crumb mixture.
Bake for 30 minutes until firm and bread crumbs are browned.
- Very yummy! If you are going for the lower carbs, omit the crumbs. K-man loved it and he's the picky one about his Mac and Cheese!
