Simple Cauliflower Keto Casserole


This keto cauliflower recipe is delicious to boot! Cauliflower in a creamy cheese sauce is a perfect keto recipe. Make sure you season well with salt and pepper (nutmeg also tastes great); otherwise, it will taste too bland.

  • ½ head cauliflower florets

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • ½ cup heavy cream

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil and cook cauliflower until tender but firm to the bite, about 10 minutes. Drain, then arrange cauliflower in a small casserole dish.

  3. Combine Cheddar cheese, cream, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Cover cauliflower with cheese mixture.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is bubbly and golden brown, about 25 minutes.

Feel free to use other types of cheeses. I often use up whatever I have sitting around in the fridge.
