My mother has been bragging about this dish for a long time now. this Keto Cauliflower Casserole is one of her favorites to serve when company comes over because not only is it Keto friendly but it tastes so good that everyone loves it. I finally got the chance to try it out while she was down visiting this summer. I went back for seconds and made it again right after she left.
One of the things I love most about this recipe is how versatile it is, you could add almost anything to the base recipe and get a great turn-out. Even better is that it warms up wonderfully so making it ahead of time and rewarming it for supper or leftovers a next day is a valid option. I should know, I have been eating it for lunch for the last three days. Yes, it’s that good! I have a feeling this dish would also go great with our Pork Chop Recipe too!

Keto Cauliflower Casserole – Directions
- Preheat oven to 350 Degrees
- Lightly grease a Glass Baking Dish
- Pre-cook bacon if needed and allow it to cool.
- Cut and cook your Cauliflower until barely soft. I use a steamer but boiling or roasting is also a valid option!
- Place your Cauliflower into your greased baking dish
- Use a potato masher (you still one of those laying around from your pre-keto days right? If not a fork will also work!) and lightly mash your cauliflower. You don’t want to completely mash it, you’re making a casserole not a loaded cauliflower mash so leave a few chunks.
- Slice and measure your green onions
- Cut your cream cheese into cubes so it will be easier to combine
- Measure out your sour cream.
- Combine 1/2 of your crumbled bacon, 1 cup of the cheddar cheese and all of your green onions, cream cheese, sour cream and a mozzarella cheese with your mashed cauliflower.
- Add salt and pepper to taste
- Stir until well combined.
- Flatten out the top (the potato masher works well for this too!) and top with remaining bacon and cheddar cheese
- Bake for 3–35 minutes until cheese on top is melted and slightly browned.
- Serve and enjoy!
