Cauliflower is such a versatile vegetable and it goes from zero to 100 in this Loaded Cauliflower Casserole!  This will be your families favorite low carb side dish!

I turned simple riced cauliflower into something creamy and dreamy.  I had to resist eating the whole dish in one sitting!


To get started I used 4 cups of already riced cauliflower.  I used the cauliflower from my post on Microwave Cauliflower Rice.

I put my frozen cauliflower rice, butter, garlic, salt, and pepper in a microwave safe casserole dish.  I covered it with the lid and microwaved it for 6 minutes.

Alternatively, you can put this in a 400F oven for 5 minutes to get the cauliflower rice thawed.

Next I stirred in 6 slices of already cooked and chopped bacon, heavy cream, and cheddar cheese.  I smoothed the top and then put even more cheese on top.  More cheese please!

I then baked it uncovered for 10 minutes.

Here it is right out of the oven!

To serve, I put spoonfuls onto plates and topped it with a big dollop of sour cream and chopped chives.

  • To use an oven instead of a microwave, Cook the rice in the oven for 6 minutes instead of the microwave.
  • I used my recipe for How to Cook Bacon in the Oven to get the bacon crispy.  You could also use bacon bits.
