Keto Loaded Cauliflower Casserole. If you are on the keto or low carb diet, our loaded cauliflower casserole is a really good substitute for loaded potatoes. “loaded” is the key part here which means indulge in the bacon and cheese. Which is obviously the motto of us low / keto carbbers. I might have made up the word – that looks a little too much like crabbers. Just go with it.
You can wing this recipe easily. You may want to add some additional spices or find you like different cheeses. For this recipe, but I’ve found my favorite spice combo and cheese and mac. And it’s not what you’d expect!
You start with the basics. Nutmeg, butter, greek yogurt, cream, bacon, cauliflower rice and cinnamon and Cheeses! Yes, those are my special spices. It’s a simple as blending all the ingredients together.
Here’s a bacon tip. Sometimes in my food processor, I chop my bacon, but this time I used my kitchen sheers. See? Kitchen tips AND new words.
In the pan, placing the ingredients and on top, sprinkling some extra loaded goodness. The level of loaded is up to you, like I said!
With the bacon added, I probably used a bit more cheddar than I should have, and this was a bit greasier than others I’d made. But from finishing it in a day, that didn’t stop us.
Sometimes you get the cauliflower taste in cauliflower dishes. Not this time. It was baconny, cheesy goodness.
