  • 24 oz frozen cauliflower mashed potatoes 2 (12 oz) each packages
  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese we use mild or medium but feel free to use sharp if you prefer it
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder feel free to go up to 1/2 tsp but taste as you go along


  • Cook mashed cauliflower in the microwave according to the package.
  • Add contents to a bowl then whisk in butter, both cheeses, heavy cream, garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste.


You definitely want to make sure you use cauliflower mashed potatoes instead of rice since it has a smaller granule that mimics grits.
