Ingredients

  • 1 lb Yukon Gold or Yellow Potatoes (cut into 1-inch chunks)
  • 1 large head of cauliflower (cut into chunks)
  • 3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup non fat greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp light butter (I use Land O' Lakes Butter spread with canola oil or Brummel & Brown Yogurt spread)
  • tsp Lawry's Seasoned Salt
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar
  • 8 slices center cut bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup green onions
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray a 9x13 casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large pot, boil your cauliflower and potato chunks until fork tender (mine normally take about 20-25 minutes). Remove from pot and drain.

  3. Put your cauliflower and potato in a large mixing bowl. Add the butter, greek yogurt, and seasoned salt.

  4. With a potato masher, start mashing your little heart out while adding the chicken broth to get desired consistency (you may use a little less chicken broth depending on the texture you prefer so add a bit at a time)! I like mine just a tiny bit chunky. When the desired consistencey is reached transder to the casserole dish and spread out evenly.

  5. Evenly sprinkle the shredded cheese and crumbled bacon.

  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

    Top with minced green onion or chives!
