Low Carb Baked Mac And Cheese Recipe -Using Cauliflower

Mac and cheese is one of my favorite dishes. Unfortunately I can no longer have the high carb version. So I created this low carb version using cauliflower. It’s perfect with BBQ chicken, perfect combo (lol) Here is the recipe:

1 large head of cauliflower
1/2 vegetable stock cube+ 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon of butter
1 tsp of salt
2 eggs
1/2 tsp of Dijon mustard
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cups of sour cream
1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper
1 1/2 cup of sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup cheddar cheese

In a pot of boiling water add the vegetable stock cube and 1/2 teaspoon salt (this adds more flavor to the cauliflower) then add the cauliflower, steam or bowl the cauliflower for about 10-12 minutes. Drain the cauliflower. Add the cauliflower to a medium bowl and mix in the butter with the cauliflower then set aside. In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, Dijon mustard, heavy cream, sour cream, salt and black pepper and cayenne pepper. Combine the cream mixture with the cauliflower florets. Add the 1 1/2 cup of sharp cheddar cheese and combine. Top with a 1/2 cup of cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Enjoy~
