Directions

1Preheat oven to 375˚F.

2Place 1 inch of water in a large pot or large saucepan with a pinch of salt and bring to a boil.

3Add cauliflower florets to boiling water and cook for 8 to 9 minutes, or until tender crisp. Drain cauliflower in colander and set aside.

4Butter a 9x13 baking dish; set aside.

5Pour milk in the same pot that you used for the cauliflower, and set over medium heat. Add the cream cheese to the milk and whisk until cream cheese is completely melted.

6Stir in dried parsley, garlic powder, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Add 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese and 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese; gently whisk until cheeses have completely melted.

7Add the cauliflower florets back into the pot, and using a large spoon, gently stir around until everything is covered in cheese sauce.

8Transfer cauliflower mixture to previously prepared baking dish; sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese and set aside.

9In a small bowl combine pork rinds crumbs, parmesan, and melted butter; mix and stir until well combined. Sprinkle pork rinds mixture in an even layer over the cauliflower.

10Bake, uncovered, for 18 to 20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

11In the meantime, dice the bacon and fry to a desired crispness. Garnish with prepared bacon and fresh parsley. Serve.
