This Loaded Cauliflower Au Gratin recipe takes the classic comfort of potatoes au gratin and gives it a low-carb twist.

With cauliflower as the star, this dish delivers a satisfying combination of flavors.

This recipe is mostly cooked on the stove top, but you’ll need to pop it in the oven for a few to brown up the top and melt the cheese. Easy, peasy though.

Loaded Cauliflower Au Gratin Directions

  1. Place top oven rack in the center position and preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Place the cauliflower in a steamer basket on top of a pot with boiling water and steam until fork-tender, around 6-7 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer cauliflower into a cold water bath to prevent further cooking. Drain well and pat dry.
  3. Transfer steamed cauliflower to a large bowl and add cream cheese, heavy cream, butter, garlic powder, and dried dill. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and toss to combine.
  4. Transfer to oven-safe casserole dish and top with shredded cheese blend and crumbled bacon. Place in pre-heated oven and roast until cheese is melted and nicely browned on top, around 8-10 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and serve immediately topped with fresh chives. Enjoy!
