In my office I have a small bookshelf next to the desk that has 13+ years worth of notebooks with recipe notes and blogging info. And some of the recipe notebooks are from long before I ever heard of blogging. I re-discovered this recipe for Easy Cheesy Baked Keto Cauliflower in one of those notebooks and was intrigued by how easy it was, and when we tested the recipe we absolutely loved it! My old notes had no information about the source of the recipe so I can’t give any credit to anyone, although we changed it a bit when we made it for the blog.
And let’s be honest, I did wonder if this blog needs another easy cheesy cauliflower recipe since Twice Baked Cauliflower, Cauliflower Gratin, and Cheesy Baked Cauliflower Tots are all such popular recipes. But the absolute easiness of the recipe, combined with the way it uses common ingredients, convinced me that many of you will like it. So grab a head of cauliflower, some butter, Parmesan, sharp cheddar, and a cheese blend and give this tasty side dish a try! And if you want to call it a casserole and eat it as a main dish, I think that would make a good dinner as well!
Before I give the recipe I want to say one more thing. This recipe uses a lot of cheese! If it seems like too much cheese for you, feel free to use the amount you prefer. I can’t see through the computer to tell how you adapt a recipe to your personal taste, honest. And you are under no obligation to make a recipe just because I share it here, so I hope the cheese police can refrain from criticizing!
How to Make Easy Cheesy Baked Keto Cauliflower:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe)
- Start by cutting up a head of cauliflower into bite-sized pieces and cooking it for exactly 5 minutes in boiling salted water.
- Drain the cauliflower very well.
- While you’re doing this preheat the oven to 375F/
- Then put the well-drained cauliflower into a bowl (or back in the pan you boiled it in if you want to save dirtying another dish!)
- Add the butter to the hot cauliflower and stir to coat cauliflower with the butter.
- Then mix in the Parmesan and sharp cheddar.
- Put cauliflower into a baking dish and top with the three-cheese blend, or any cheese that melts well.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the cauliflower is cooked through and cheese is all melted and nicely browned.
- Serve hot and enjoy!
This reheated especially well so if you’re a big fan of cheesy cauliflower you might want to double the recipe and make it as a Weekend Food Prep recipe to enjoy several times as a side dish.
