These Keto Cheese and Bacon Cauliflower Buns are the bees knees!  Cauliflower lover or not, you are going to love these!

I was feeling the need to make a new kind of bun that was just a little more “comforting” than my original Cauliflower Buns so I took the basic recipe added a few changes, amped up the fat and the cheesiness and who can say no to the addition of crispy bacon! 

These turned out so much better than I could ever have thought.  Be prepared to find a new love.

So, you don’t like cauliflower….

Well, let me tell you a bit of a secret… I don’t really like it either. 

It is kind of a bit funky in my opinion, but let me tell you this, these buns are TOTALLY “the biz!”  Not “cauliflowery” at all just cheesy, bacony goodness!

How do I eat Keto Cauliflower Buns?

You can eat these totally on their own, toasted with your favourite toppings, or wrapped around a big juicy burger. 

As we are getting closer to winter and soup season (just quietly I ate soup tonight) these buns would be good toasted as dunking toast.

Or even better toast 2 together with a few slices of cheese between and then cut into soldiers.  Hell yes!  I think I have to try that!

  • 100 g bacon diced
  • 500 g cauliflower
  • 140 g grated mozzarella
  • 40 g coconut flour
  • 40 g almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp pink Himalayan salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp Trocomare seasoning this is available in the gluten free section at the supermarket
  • 65 g grassfed butter melted


  • Preheat oven to 200℃. Prepare 2 large baking tray with baking paper
  • Fry bacon until lightly golden.  Reserve.
  • “Rice” your cauliflower in a food processor or Thermomix® in 2 batches 
    5 seconds/reverse/speed 5
  • Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, or in Thermomix® 15 seconds/reverse/speed 4
  • Press into large egg rings (only fill half way up) to shape the buns on baking tray you dont want them too thick as they are very filling.
  • Bake 20 minutes flipping after 10 minutes cook until lightly golden and a little crispy


These buns are very delicious.  
I have used a very large egg ring to create these, but you could easily make these with smaller ones.  
They are very filling so if using for a burger I would recommend using the smaller egg ring and making 12 serves or halve the mix.
This recipe is great to make ahead and freeze in individual portions for the lunchbox

    Thank you for replying Megan…haven’t had much luck getting any feedback from my questions from other sites.

    • Megan says:

      Hi Elizabeth, I try my best. Communication is hard when it comes from so many different places on a site lol

  • Nicola says:

    Hi, i’d Really like to make these today, but I don’t have trocomare seasoning at the moment, just wondering if there is a suitable substitute? Thanks

    Made these for tea tonight, Good Friday, without the bacon. Used them as buns for salmon patty burgers. Perfect! Even fussy 9 year old inhaled his.

  • Tamara Wilks says:

    Can they be made without the Trocomare seasoning as none of this in the 3 supermarkets in Australia I have checked in.

    • Jacqui says:

      Herbamare salt by A Vogel would be yummy too. Available at Australian supermarkets & health shops.
      Seasoning salt containing Sea salt, celery leaves, leek, cress, onion, chive, parsley, lovage, garlic, basil, marjoram, rosemary, thyme and kelp.

    • Megan says:

      Hi Tamara, for sure it can. Trocomare is just a seasoning. It is usually located on the bottom shelf in the gluten free aisle in Coles and Woolies.

    These are great, so delicious my daughter was eating them warm out of the oven slathered with butter and kept asking for more.

    OMG Megan. You have done it again. These little gems are to die for. Mine were a bit crumbly when I went to turn them over so I just cooked them for longer and then turned them over. These babies wont ever hit the freezer. Hubby and girls scoffed them. Thank you Megan, you are a legend.x

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Oh that is so awesome Carolyn. These have been a hit for a while now. Something so simple but tasty.

  • Natalie says:

    At what stage do you remove the egg rings? Mine stuck to the egg rings making it hard to remove them after cooking. Should I be buttering my egg rings first?

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Hi Natalie, the egg rings are used for shaping the buns only. I dont cook them in it.

  • Carol says:

    Can you use a different cheese

  • Claudia Milton says:

    Hi Megan!
    Looking forward to making these – I don’t have coconut flour, can I just double the almond flour? Thanks!

  • Karenina says:

    Hi Megan
    I made these today for the first time. They were amazing and tasted sooo good. I had mine with a piece of barramundi and coconut sriracha sauce with a side salad. Loved it. I did omit the bacon from them because I would like to do these for a brekkie with avo, egg and bacon on them and thought the extra bacon maybe be an overkill.
    Thanks for sharing – fab recipe!!
