Cauliflower "Mac" and Cheese - Food Network Photo Contest



I was so excited to learn this morning that my picture was chosen for Food Network's "We Asked, You Cooked": Cauliflower “Mac” and Cheese Casserole Fan Photo Contest!
Mr. Louis Jourdan
So here's a little backstory and the recipe...
So a few weeks ago me and my sister decided to have a little comfort food and a movie night...It had been a while since we'd seen Louis Jourdan...I mean the 1950's musical "Gigi." 
Earlier in the day I had come across a Food Network Photo Contest for Cauliflower Mac and Cheese and since I had a lonely head in the fridge I thought hey why not give it a try!
George Stella's recipe proved to be a very tasty low carb alternative to regular Mac & Cheese. While the recipe is straight forward, there were a few things I want to clarify.

  • I made sure not to over cook the cauliflower so instead of boiling, I steamed it. Overcooked cauliflower will straight out ruin this recipe, you want it to be par-cooked before you put it in the oven otherwise you will get 'Mush & Cheese.' 
  • A few other changes I made included: 
    • Using yogurt instead of heavy cream
    • Using a mixture of cheeses Gouda and Cheddar
    • And finally I topped it with breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese to add an extra crisp.
Here is the recipe link to George Stella's: Cauliflower Mac and Cheese 
Enjoy!!
