Low-Carb Loaded Baked Cauliflower Casserole

This cauliflower casserole is filling and full of nutrients. If you're looking for a way to incorporate more vegetables, this one really packs a punch!

I’m really excited to get to share this guilt-FREE low-carb Loaded Baked Cauliflower Casserole! This is a great meal for a potato-loving family.  Personally, we probably eat far too many potatoes than are good for us.

Quite honestly, potatoes are not always conducive to our eating plan.  I always fall short in the vegetable category for our meals.  If any of you know Mark, you will know he has a dislike for onions and vegetables.  He can throw down a salad but beyond that, he looks at vegetables as unsavory for the most part.

This can make my garden pursuits seem a little misfocused, but I digress…

Loaded Baked Cauliflower Casserole Origins

I originally posted this recipe way back when I did Trim Healthy Mama (THM) religiously.  As a family, we LOVED my Loaded Baked Potato Casserole.  But clearly, that didn’t fit into THM.

My very easy and simple way to correct this problem was to substitute cauliflower for potatoes.

And you know what?!  It worked.  Even Mark eats his fair portion of this casserole.  I can honestly say this Loaded Baked Cauliflower Casserole hits the spot every time.  Reason being?  This casserole is packed full of flavor without the blood-sugar spike.

I promise you won’t even feel like you’re missing out on this recipe.  If you’d like to try the original potato version of this recipe you can find it here.

Both casseroles are delicious!
