I bought a ham a bit ago and though it'd been staring me in the face every time I'd open the fridge I didn't have time or gumption to create much, in the recipe arena anyways. :)
Tonight was the night... the date stamped on the ham said to use or freeze by 3/4/13. I made it just in time! :)
I had a plethora of cauliflower, cheese and ham... the rest is history.
|Yes... that is a string of delicious cheese in the lower right corner of the photo... you are welcome ;).|
Cauliflower Mac and Cheese with Ham Casserole - Low Carb
2 bags (16 oz each) frozen cauliflower
2 cups of ham, diced
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup sour cream
3 teaspoons honey dijon mustard
2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup cubed cheese (any kind you want! :))
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 375°F
Apply bacon grease or butter to a 9 x 13 pan and set aside.
In a medium large pot empty both bags of cauliflower. Add water to the pot to cover all the florets. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 8 - 10 minutes.
Drain the cauliflower and return it to the pot, take a potato masher and mash the cauliflower up a bit to a texture you like. Transfer cauliflower mash to pan. Add ham chunks to the top and set aside.
In a medium large pan put the remaining ingredients and cook over medium heat until everything is mixed and the cheese is slightly melted. Pour the mixture over top the cauliflower and ham.
Spread the mixture out evenly then add the cheese cubes.
The mister liked the finished product which made it blog worthy ;) Hope you and yours like it if you try it! :) I know I'll definitely be making it again :).
