Low Carb Cauliflower Alfredo Casserole
When you’re in the mood for a savory meal, but you’re trying to stay away from pasta, you need to try this Big Family Low Carb Cauliflower Alfredo Casserole. Instead of using pasta, you’ll use cauliflower as the primary ingredient. You can combine it with a few other ingredients to prepare a cheesy, wholesome meal that everyone in the household can enjoy, even if they’re not trying to watch their carb intake.
What You’ll Need to Make Your Cauliflower Alfredo Casserole
If you’d like to make the Low Carb Cauliflower Alfredo Casserole, you’ll need the following simple ingredients:
- Cauliflower. You’ll need at least two large heads of cauliflower to prepare this casserole.
- Unsalted Butter. Use one stick of unsalted butter in this recipe to create a flavorful homemade sauce.
- Heavy Cream. Make sure you have at least two cups of heavy cream to create your sauce.
- Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese. Blend the cheese in with your other ingredients to give your sauce more flavor.
You’ll also need cooked bacon crumbled into pieces to complete this recipe. If you’d like to make a cajun version of the casserole, you can sprinkle cajun seasoning in the heavy cream with the butter and cheese.
Do I have to use bacon?
You don’t have to use bacon, but it will add flavor and texture to your Low Carb Cauliflower Alfredo Casserole. You can use any type of bacon that you personally like to eat, such as pork or turkey bacon. The crisp crumbles pair perfectly with the cauliflower, heavy cream, and cheese.
Can I add extra veggies to the casserole?
You can add extra veggies to the casserole if you want. Make sure you’re choosing low carb vegetables, such as spinach to ensure that the casserole is still low-carb and keto-friendly.
How long does the casserole need to bake in the oven?
You’ll need to let the Low Carb Cauliflower Alfredo Casserole bake for about 45 minutes. Make sure the cheese is melting. When the cheese begins to turn brown, it’s the perfect time to remove the casserole from the oven, slice into it, and serve it.
Can I use margarine instead of butter?
If you don’t have butter, you can use margarine as a substitute. However, butter will give this casserole more flavor, so it’s better to use.
What should I serve with the casserole?
If you’d like to have something on the side, consider preparing a side salad consisting of baby spinach, fresh kale, chopped almonds, and a homemade low-carb dressing. I have low[carb marinated cucumber salad, a layered salad, and lots of low-carb desserts.
