Twice Baked Cauliflower (Low Carb)

Cauliflower is one veggie that Todd and I both enjoy. It's so versatile and can take on almost any flavor. It can even mimic the taste and texture of potatoes, which is a plus when you are on a low carb diet. This Twice Baked Cauliflower recipe is a winner because of it's creaminess and richness. Plus it has bacon. Need I say more? :)
