½ tsp ground mustard
1 to 2 cups heavy cream
3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Xantham gum (if needed for thickening)

Cut cauliflower heads into sections, and steam in a large pot until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and let cool until able to handle. Cut into bit size pieces and set aside.
In a large sauce pan, melt butter and sauté onion until onion until tender. Add almond flour and cook for a minute or two.

Add in cheese and stir until melted and combined.
Transfer cooked cauliflower to a large bowl, pour sauce on top and fold together. Pour into a 13×9” baking dish.
Top with crushed pork rinds and bake at 350℉ for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden and bubbly. After cooling you can enjoy your Kaufmann 2 Cauliflower Mac and Cheese!
