4. Bring the cream to a simmer in a small saucepan and whisk in the cream cheese until smooth.

5. Stir in the 1.5 cups of cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic powder and whisk until the cheese melts, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, pour over the cauliflower, and stir to combine.

6. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese and bake until browned and bubbly hot, about 15 minutes, and serve.

***It may change your carb content but I add different types of shredded cheese with the cheddar and top with cooked bacon before serving.
