You will all probably be aware by now that I am a huge advocate of the Keto lifestyle. It’s something I wish I had been aware of many moons ago!

Many choose to use Keto as a form of weight loss and there is no denying that it works wonders. Once settled into the lifestyle it really does make you realise how much carbohydrates bloat you. Taking a few days off during the summer was interesting as I didn’t have the same love for favourite carby foods anymore and I felt terribly sluggish and just ‘urgh’. That feeling disappeared after the first strict few days back on Keto and now back in the flow again and I have oodles of energy! The health benefits associated with the lifestyle are immense too but that is definitely for another post!

I’m a creature of habit and am quite happy eating the same meals, however sometimes it is nice to spice it up a little and my world was changed recently when I happened upon a Keto cauliflower cheese recipe that has become my new go-to comfort food.

We eat a lot of roasts (chicken, beef, pork) as it’s a great way to meet daily macros and have food left over for days beyond. As much as I love them, a bowl of meat, cauliflower and broccoli can become slightly dull… that’s until this recipe fell into my lap…Β https://realhousemoms.com/loaded-cauliflower-casserole/

Albeit the recipe is named a cauliflower casserole, it actually makes for the most awesome Keto cauliflower cheese recipe ever, making it the greatest addition to a roast ever!

I’ve made it quite a few times now and each time becomes easier, with the ingredients now always stocked in my fridge. The recipe above is very American with the products mentioned, but I have simplified mine ever so slightly!

Keto Cauliflower Cheese

Keto Cauliflower Cheese Ingredients:

A full Soft Cheese pot. I use the Aldi Soft Cheese at around 45p per pack, although any soft cheese works!
A whole cauliflower (medium to large)
4-5 Spring Onions (or however many you wish)
Double Cream (4 tablespoons-ish) you will get to know how much to use.
A good handful of Pancetta – Aldi packs have two separate portions and I use one of those portions.
Mature Cheddar Cheese – and lots of it. I don’t measure as such but certainly use a good handful of manually grated cheese.
Butter – for cooking the pancetta.

Keto Cauliflower Cheese Method:

Start by cutting up the cauliflower into florets and cook in a pan with boiling water for 5-10 minutes. In a frying pan heat the butter and crisp the pancetta – this will take a couple of minutes, giving you time to dry the pancetta with kitchen roll before the cauliflower is ready.

Whilst those ingredients are cooking, combine the soft cheese, spring onion, cheese and cream in a bowl and mix. Once the pancetta is cooked and dried, combine with the mix whilst waiting for the cauliflower. As you can see from the image below, the mix will be quite thick – you can add more double cream if necessary to make the mix more malleable.

When the cauliflower is cooked and drained, add to the mixture and mix all the ingredients together.

Transfer the mixture to an oven-proof dish and sprinkle more grated cheese on top!

Bake in the oven on the middle shelf for 25 mins at a temperature of Gas Mark 6/ 200 degrees Celsius.

Scoop out the desired amount, leftovers can be heated up again the next day and simply enjoy the most awesome Keto cauliflower cheese ever!

This is without a shadow of a doubt my favourite Keto meal to prepare. I am following the ‘Lazy Keto’ route and am no longer counting macros. I am not a newbie and I know what my limits are, tending to eat one meal a day with a few snacks thrown in. It’s clearly working a treat as here in a recent full body shot!

It is meal for cheese fans for definite, although I am sure there are alternatives! He would love it – next time I make a big batch I will bring some down. Cauliflowers are smaller now which is annoying me slightly! πŸ™ xx

I tend to just have cauliflower with grated cheese, but this sounds lovely and a great way to add some extra fats. I’ll definitely be trying this.

You will absolutely love it – the joy is, you can use any cheese, if a mild cheese then swap spring onions for red onion to give it a kick x

That looks tasty – I’d love to try it. But having a house full of people who claim to be allergic (not really) to vegetables I’m not sure I’d get away with that one!
Thanks for linking to #pocolo
