Keto Loaded Cauliflower casserole

Mad Creations Fully Loaded Cauliflower Bake recipe is basically me wanting to make a potato bake.
Before jumping to the recipe please note that the below information contains HOT TIPS for this recipe. We try and answer all your questions to guarantee a perfect keto recipe every time.

Growing up potato bake was always the naughty dish that might be there at a special barbecue or on the table at Christmas.  Fighting with my older brothers for a spoonful was always a mission.  You needed to be quick or you missed out.

Today I am obviously not eating potatoes, so you need a good substitute, and I think cauliflower does okay.  Eating it like this takes out that cauliflower “smell”  and it almost feels like eating potatoes, but not so carb laden. Even for those of us who are not the biggest cauliflower fans this recipe is a goodie. Personally I can eat it and not feel taste the cauliflower. lol.

If you are after some other great cauliflower recipes, like Cauli Toast, Cauli Tots, Cauli Burgers, or even the amazing Chicken Za’atar, pick up a copy Real Food Real Fast or Flavour, both books have some ripper recipes.

    OMG absolutely delicious. Not a fan of traditional cauliflower cheese but this is to die for.

    • Megan says:

      I am far from a cauliflower fan too Robyn, so if you see a Mad Creations recipe with it in it trust me disguised well lol

    oh my gosh…sooo goood! I will never have plain cauliflower cheese again!

  • Carola says:

    Loved this so much!! Thank you. Quick question though, as I’m new to keto…. when you mention the nutrition details at the bottom, are they for the whole bake or just per serve? IE: it says Net Carbs: 3g…. does that mean I divide that by 4 to get an individual serve amount?

    I made this as a cauliflower and broccoli bake. What a tasty way of eating vegetables. This was so delicious that I will make this over and over again. Highly recommended.

    Like Bela d, I included broccoli in this ‘to die for’ recipe. Clean plates all round. Cant speak highly enough.

  • Kylie says:

    Which part do I use the 2tbsp of sour cream. Thanks

  • Beverly says:

    Like Kylie, in the above comment, I want to know when to add the 2 T sour cream. Also, how much La Falda spice to add. Please answer as I see Kylie asked her question in April, 2021.

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Hi Beverly, I have worded it better now for you. Sorry for any confusion. It is an old recipe that needed a bit of extra love.
