Cheesy Cauliflower With Bacon | THM: S

This Cheesy Cauliflower With Bacon is low-carb comfort food at its finest! Think Mac & Cheese (or “KD,” as we call it up here 🙂 ) ooey, gooey goodness with out any of the carbs!

Cheesy Cauliflower With Bacon makes an amazing side dish to wings, steak, burgers, or any other S meat. Or, if you’re craving a bowl of Mac & Cheese, you can enjoy a bowl or this on its own. It will fill you up without crossing fuels!

You don’t need any special ingredients for this recipe:

If you don’t have riced cauliflower, or can’t find it, you can easily make your own for this recipe by running half a head of fresh cauliflower through a food processor or blender, or even a cheese grater.

I took the fast route by steaming my riced cauliflower in the microwave, but you can also do it in a saucepan on the stove. Just remember to drain it well once its tender.

Keep in mind that this dish is quite calorie-dense with all the different cheeses in it, so it’s best enjoyed responsibly and saved for occasional use.
