mashedpotatoes

2 heads fresh cauliflower

¼ tsp. pepper

1 tsp. minced onion flakes

4 tbsp. butter

2 oz cream cheese (optional)

4 tbsp. heavy cream

Preheat oven to 370° Fahrenheit. Cook cauliflower on stovetop until it is very well done (fall-apart-pork tender).

Drain well and mix cauliflower with all other ingredients except cream. At this point you may add the cream cheese if desired. The cream cheese will make for really rich and creamy potatoes.

Use a hand mixer to beat until desired consistency is reached. For creamier potatoes use a food processor. Add cream slowly and mix again, being careful not to add too much liquid.

Spray an ovenproof dish with cooking spray mixture. Add pats of extra butter on top for an extra buttery potato. Bake 15-20 minutes, until hot.
