Our Thoughts:
Over the past couple of years, Scott has really started to love cauliflower.  We've had several great cauliflower dishes in the past (Cheesy Cauliflower, Cauliflower Medley, and Cheesy Artichokes, Cauliflower and Red Pepper) but this one might just be an all-time favorite!

I could go on and on and on about this dish but the bottom line, is that it was delicious.  Every single one of my kids ate it.  It actually reminded me of twice-baked potatoes with the skin of the Idaho potatoes left on.  The orange sweetness of the sweet potato reminded me of the cheese and smooth, creamy texture of the cauliflower was like the sour cream. 

You could always make this dish even healthier by reducing the Idaho potatoes and adding more sweet potato and cauliflower.  You could also cut out the small pad of butter and milk and just use more Greek yogurt.

Of course, if you are feeling really decadent, add in some cheese (your choice) and bacon bits.

Hope you enjoy!
