It's always iffy to make a casserole - for some, the mere word brings back horrible memories of their mother's cooking. So I was bit tentative to cook this one up, even securing a promise from the boy not to comment if he hated it. However, turns out this is pretty damn good. Enjoy...
Cauliflower-Green Bean Casserole
1 head cauliflower
1 cup green beans
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup butter
1/4 small yellow or white onion, finely sliced
1 cup freshly cooked, crumbled bacon
1 cup shredded mixture Mozzarella and Cheddar cheeses (or just use one)
Tarragon & pepper to taste.
Cook and drain cauliflower and green beans. Pour into large casserole dish and stir in mayo, butter, onion, and bacon, mixing thoroughly. Put the cheese on top and bake at 300 deg. for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
Makes 8 servings.

Adapted from Dana Carpender's book 500 Low-Carb Recipes. The original recipe uses frozen veggies which work just as well as fresh and twice the amount of butter & mayo but it was too mayo-y for me.
