One of my favourite meals growing up was stuffed baked potatoes. Baked potatoes stuffed with sour cream and cheese, sprinkled with some green onions and bacon for a special treat. It was to die for.

Fast forward a few years and potatoes are no longer a part of our weekly menu. It’s not that we NEVER eat them, it’s just very rare.

As I’ve gotten older, my carb tolerance is not what it used to be. Plus, I know the effects that carbs have on insulin (our fat storing hormone,) which is why I don’t eat too many of them anymore.

So what do you do if you still want the great taste of a stuffed baked potato?

You use cauliflower instead! Once you blend it up with some sour cream and cream cheese, it’s so creamy and smooth, you can’t tell the difference.

I made this once without telling my hubby what it was (he hates cauliflower BTW) and he had no idea this dish was made from cauliflower. Usually, I can’t fool him, but with this dish, I did 😉

My boys also love this side dish. It’s got everything they love in it: cauliflower, sour cream, cream cheese, cheese, and bacon. What’s NOT to love?!
