Potato Cauliflower Cheese Casserole

Cooking spray
3-4 medium potatoes, diced
1/2 head of cauliflower, chopped into bite sized pieces
salt and pepper, to taste
2 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 c. cheddar cheese, shredded, more for sprinkling on top
2 c. sour cream (I used lite)
6 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped

Preheat oven to 350 F.

 Grease a baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.

Boil potatoes for 10-15 minutes, or until they are soft. Drain. At the same time, boil the cauliflower for 7-10 minutes. Drain. Mix the potatoes and cauliflower together in the greased baking dish. Season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with cilantro.

Cook the onion for 3-5 minutes over medium heat. Add to the baking dish. Toss.

Combine the cheese and sour cream in a dish. Spoon over the potato and cauliflower mixture. Stir to combine it all together.

Bake for 20 minutes. Sprinkle a layer of cheddar over the top. Bake for an additional 3-5 minutes. When it's done, sprinkle the cooked bacon over the top. Serve hot.

I made it with the bacon in the casserole and baked it, but I was sorely disappointed. Nice crispy bacon on the top would have been much better. That is how I will make it in the future.
