          Once you have cooked the cauliflower florets, put them in cheese cloth and squeeze as much water out as possible. You will be amazed! Then add butter, cream cheese , a little parm and salt and pepper to taste. When I cook my cauliflower in my Instant Pot, I break it into florets and trim off the stems, place in steamer basket with a sliced garlic clove and cook on high 4 minutes then immediately release pressure.

          Basically you cook cauliflower and mash it - you can add a bit of butter and milk like you would regular mashed potatoes. Hope that helps :)

        So there are a ton of ways to make cauliflower mash. I've seen recipes with cream cheese, recipes with sour cream, recipes with buttermilk, etc. The recipe you use can alter the nutrition information, so I wouldn't necessarily go by the info for this recipe. Having said that, loaded cauliflower mash? Oh yum!!

            Costco has frozen organic cauliflower mash, which saves a bunch of prep time. It's not too terrible by itself, but who am I to forego adding cheese and bacon?!

                  Do these macros include the cauliflower mash ingredients or are they only for the ingredients listed for loaded?

                    The cauliflower AND toppings are included in the macros.

                    Can you use frozen mashed cauliflower

                      Yes, of course! If possible, drain away or cook off excess liquid from thawing before loading up with toppings.

                      When I added this meal I didn't realize I had to make the cauliflower mash first. So, I dis not buy heavy cream. Is there something I can use as a substitute?? Thanks! BTW: I am new to all of this. Currently on day 2.

                        Cream cheese, sour cream can be subbed in.

                            Do you just cook cauliflower first and mash it up??

                              Super delicious, I also agree that it would be easier if the recipe for the mash was included.

                                I know, right! I mean... you'd think it would be included. When I make a meal plan, I don't read the recipe to see how to prepare it. I just buy the ingredients it tells me to buy! Was gonna make this last week, but noooo. I was missing one of the ingredients from the main recipe. Doh!

                                Great recipe, however I agree that it would be easier if the cauliflower mash instructions were included.

                                  Why is the recipe for the mash not with this?

                                    Please follow the Carb Manager Cauliflower Mash recipe before creating this loaded recipe.

                                  Might I suggest just duplicating the cauliflower mash recipe into this recipe?

                                    This is one of my favorites. I added 1/2 cup of sour cream & it’s just like a loaded baked patato without the guilt! Sooooo goooood 😍
