Bacon Cheddar Cauliflower Soup

I found this recipe on Pinterest and fell in love! There are few things I love as much as a big bowl of hot potato soup when the weather turns cold. And when I say potato soup, picture all the trimmings - Bacon, Cheddar, Sour Cream... The whole shabang!

But potatoes aren't as good for my waistline as I would like - not that Bacon is, but that's what Turkey bacon is for. So finding a way to replace the potatoes (or even half of them) is heavenly in my book!

Tip: I'll be making a HUGE batch of this and freezing off small portions so that it's ready to go when we need it.

8 slices center-cut bacon, chopped (half used for garnish)
1/2 small onion, chopped OR 1 teaspoon onion powder
1 celery stalk, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
salt & pepper
4 cups shredded or grated cauliflower (1/2 large head)
2 Tablespoons water
2 Tablespoons flour
2 cups chicken broth, divided
2 cups 2% milk
3-4 dashes hot sauce (or more or less)
2-1/2 cups (12oz) shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided (half used for garnish)
2 green onions, chopped (optional)
