Loaded Cauliflower Casserole

Spoon holding up a bite of cheesy cauliflower casserole - low carb, keto recipe

Once you’ve tried this delicious recipe, you won’t want to eat roasted cauliflower any other way again. For a simple side dish that will encourage everyone to eat their vegetables, top healthy cauliflower with bacon, sour cream, and sharp Cheddar cheese.


  • 3 slices bacon
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into bite-size pieces
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
  • ⅔ cup sour cream
  • 4 scallions, sliced, divided


  • Gather all the ingredients. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Place bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; cook until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and let cool. (Reserve the drippings in the pan.)
  • Combine cauliflower, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the bacon drippings in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Roast, stirring twice, until tender, about 35 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine 1 cup cheese, 2/3 cup sour cream, and half the scallions in a small bowl.
  • When the cauliflower is tender, stir the cheese mixture into the cauliflower in the pan. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Bake until hot, 5 to 7 minutes more.
  • Chop the cooled bacon.
  • Sprinkle the hot casserole with the bacon and the remaining scallions.
