Loaded Cauliflower Casserole is steamed cauliflower combined with cream cheese, sour cream, sharp cheddar, Monterey Jack, bacon and chives. Cauliflower has never tasted this good!
This delicious casserole is easy to make and keto friendly. Have you tried any of my other keto friendly side dishes? This one, Creamy Mashed Cauliflower, Roasted Cauliflower and Oven Roasted Parmesan Asparagus are just a few of our favorites.
This Loaded Cauliflower Casserole is simply AMAZING. Trying to find new ideas for the same old veggies that everyone in the family loves can be hard work. This my friends is a real winner. If you have not tried any of my recipes in a while you really must try this one! Even my picky son loves this one. Forget the loaded potato casserole and make this lower carb better tasting version with cauliflower.
2 lbs cauliflower florets cut in bite size pieces
1 box (8 ounces) cream cheese softened

1/2 teaspoon onion powder
6 slices crispy cooked bacon coarsely chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives (reserve one tablespoon for the top)

Steam cauliflower until fork tender; approximately 10 minutes. Drain well in colander.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
