There isn’t anything not to like about a loaded baked potato … am I right? Sour cream, cheese, onions, chives, butter and of course — bacon.  I guess if you are watching carbs though, the potato is the part that wouldn’t be good?

 

I am sure I should be watching my carbs … but mostly I just eat what I like.  #BodyByBread  But I love cauliflower– and I LOVE loaded baked potatoes.  So, this Loaded Cauliflower Casserole right here?  Win-Win.

Like I said — what’s not to like here?  Steam the cauliflower, fried up some bacon, tossed in some sour cream, cheese and green onion.  Give it a quick stir, and spread it into a casserole dish.  Bake it with more cheese on top, and top it with some more green onions when it comes out.

 

Best part, besides the taste I mean? This delicious low carb cauliflower casserole is done in about 30 minutes.  This is a great anytime side dish, or main dish casserole — but it would be perfect for the holidays, don’t you agree?

 Back in the day, every month I participated in a group called Secret Recipe Club.  We were assigned a blog to bake/cook from each month and all at once, on a Monday, we would reveal our recipes and then see who got our blog and what they selected.  It was always lots of fun.  Then, like all good things, they say, it came to an end.

 

Well, this month — we are having a reunion!   I was given the blog Cheese Curd In Paradise.  It’s a tasty blog FULL of so many recipes it’ll make your head spin!! It’s run by Ashley, and a blog after my own heart.  Ashley has a little bit of everything on her site.  You’ll need to pull up a chair and allot yourself some time once you start scrolling!  I actually had been assigned this blog before.  I made Ashley’s Hawaiian Chicken BBQ Sandwiches, In a Crockpot.  They were delicious, but I couldn’t get my mind off of the Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joe’s she had on there, too! So I made those a short while later, also Delicious.

 

  This time, I have three recipes on my short list to make soon, Ashley’s Churro Chex Mix,  her Cheeseburger and Fries Casserole and of course, this Rhubarb Honey White Sangria!

  1. I have made this recipe several times now and my family loves it. Thank you for such a yummy cauliflower dish. I’m going to make a double batch to add to my Thanksgiving dinner, I know it will disappear

  2. I’m going to make this for Christmas but I’m wondering, have you ever made it in a crock pot? I’d love to be able to do it that way as others will be using the oven that day.

    1. Rachael – I will be perfectly honest here, That nutrition calculator is part of my recipe card program, and it’s truly just for a gauge. That is why I always say that it isn’t guaranteed accurate. If I had to guess, I would say from the number of carbohydrates it has in it? But I truly don’t know. I am sorry I can’t be of more help.
