Day 1 Potatoes Au Gratin

Welcome to Day 1 of the Faux Health, Faux Sure Series

Potatoes Au Gratin

Ingredients Needed:

1 head of Cauliflower
1/2 c. light Velveeta (sliced very thin)
1/4 c. Reduced Fat Cheddar
1 tablespoon Calorie/Fat Free Butter (parkay spray)
1/4 C. Panko Bread Crumbs
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese

Preheat Oven to 350*
Take your Cauliflower and cut up into Small pieces
And Boil under fork tender ( about 10 minutes)
Drain your Cauliflower and move over to a baking dish
Add your low calorie butter and get to mashing
You don't have to mash, but I think it taste a little cheesier!
Once mashed into the consistency you like, Sprinkle with Parmesan, 
cheddar, and Velveeta
Once melted, top with Bread Crumbs and Broil to brown and crunchy

Now, on to Nutrition
The dish serves 4-6 people, and the nutrition information is per serving (not dish)
I would also like to point out that I am in no way a nutritionist
I read labels and make sure that my family consumes healthy alternatives when possible
If my picky husband and 3 year old love it, you will too!

  1. Yum! I never tried cauliflower until this past summer, but I have to say I'm hooked! It's such a versatile, creamy vegetable! I'll definitely be trying this. Thanks for posting!
