Yes, this is every bit as delicious as it sounds! Whether you're trying to cut down on carbs, or trying to sneak more veggies into your kids' meals, or just want to play a trick on someone who says they hate cauliflower (perhaps your own taste buds?), this is your ticket.
In Kalyn's updated version of this dish, she uses reduced fat cream cheese and sour cream, but me, I use the real stuff. Do as your own conscience allows, though.
Kalyn's recipe calls for completely mashing the cauliflower -- which I think would peg the comfort food scale! -- but I don't have a potato masher I'm happy with, and I wanted a chunkier texture than the mixer would get me, so I used a pastry blender. Worked great!
If you try this dish and fool someone into thinking it's really potatoes, let me know. I bet you can pull it off!
