Keto Cauliflower Casserole

Loaded with Bacon, Chicken and Cheese

The basis of our keto cauliflower casserole was to feed everyone without making separate meals. Cauliflower can easy feel like pasta in the mouth. Everyone loves chicken, bacon and ranch. And let's not forget the cheese. Sometimes we like to call this dish Keto Best Friends Casserole, because well...  there is a story behind it.  I know, of course there is. You all love stories so much, admit it. 

No really though, so when we first started keto it was so confusing. There was no way I was making it through calculating all those macros and figuring out what can and can not be eaten.  All we were looking for was easy keto dinner ideas.  That is when this loaded keto cauliflower casserole was born.

Enter The Best Friend

Without my best friend there is no way I would have stuck to keto. As most of you can probably relate, it can be hard to stay on track and come up with new dishes to make. Especially if you have a family to feed, so we set out to create dishes that are family friendly. Like this keto cauliflower casserole which is void of any weird, special or unusual ingredients to make it approved.

This is the first dish her and I made together and were SHOCKED that both of our families chowed it down.  It became a joke that it was our signature dish and thus we dubbed  it Keto Best Friends Casserole.   After all, bacon cheddar and chicken are best friends just like us!  Corny , I know. But hey.

    • I don't see why not! We haven't done it yet, but I am certain there is a way. I would just throw everything in and set it on low. Keep an eye on it. Let us know!

  1. I mixed an egg in with the cauliflower and chicken, put in muffin tin cups then poured the cheese sauce over. Let cool, comes out like a perfect indivdual serving!
