Ingredients
  

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 8 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 1 lb ham
  • 1 whole onion chopped
  • 1 bunch green onion chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup colby jack cheese shredded/divided
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup chicken bone broth
  • 1 tbs seasoning blend of sea salt, ground black pepper, onion, and garlic powder

Notes

  1. Lay out bacon on a cookie sheet and bake at 250 for about 20 minutes (until lightly browned, but not fully crispy).
  2. Steam whole head of cauliflower with seasoning blend. I used the instant pot with a steamer basket and steamed my cauliflower for 6 minutes. If you don't have an instant pot, you can steam it in a steamer basket on the stove.
  3. Pan fry your ham in a skillet until browned
  4. While everything is cooking, chop your onion, green onion, and mushroom and shred cheese.
  5. When ham is warmed through, remove it from the skilled and cube it into bite sized pieces.
  6. When bacon is almost fully cooked, remove it from the oven and chop it into bite sized pieces. Turn oven up to 400 degrees.
  7. Mash cauliflower with chicken broth and add 1 cup of shredded cheese, cream cheese, cubed ham, onion, and mushrooms and mix well. 
  8. Top with remaining cheese and chopped bacon.
  9. Place in the oven for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bacon is crispy.
  10. Top with green onion and serve.
