Loaded Cauliflower Casserole, all the flavour of a loaded baked potato without all the carbs and if that isn’t enough, it’s Keto compliant.  It sounds crazy, I know, but it is true.    Certain types of dairy can be enjoyed on the Keto diet and it’s all the one’s I love.  Butter, cheese, full fat yogurts and heavy cream are all allowed, seriously!

Now, let’s look at the ingredients in this recipe, cream cheese, heavy cream, shredded cheese, bacon.  This doesn’t sound like diet food, rich, and creamy and luscious, you will be glad it’s all Keto friendly.

I’ve made this same basic recipe two different ways, I love recipes that are flexible.    Follow the recipe below, OR make cauliflower mash, and stir in all the fixings.

An excellent side dish with  Steak or Pork dishes, Sheet Pan Pork Souvlaki for example, make a bigger serving size than you normally need and you’ll benefit from Intentional leftovers.  This loaded cauliflower recipe reheats very well, and will keep for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.   Cook Sheet Pan Pork Souvlaki for dinner, double that recipe and you will be enjoying delicious lunches all week.
