Low-Carb Ham and Cauliflower Casserole au Gratin.
I created this Low-Carb Ham and Cauliflower Casserole au Gratin on a January day a few years back when I wanted some low-carb comfort food. I had ham and cauliflower in the fridge, and thoughts of Low-Carb Twice Baked Cauliflower gave me the idea for this casserole with lots of cauliflower with ham, cream cheese, Greek yogurt, Parmesan, green onion, and cheese. I’d love this delicious low-carb dinner for a cold winter night!
Of course I had to include this one when I updated my collection of 20+ Delicious Low-Carb and Keto Casserole Recipes recipes. There’s not much I don’t love about low-carb casseroles, but one of the biggest reasons I love to make them is the way they guarantee leftovers. And most low-carb casseroles also freeze well, including this one. (Did you know there’s a recipe index page for things that Can Freeze? I love to pull dinner out of the freezer when I don’t want to cook!) This Low-Carb Ham and Cauliflower Casserole au Gratin has been wildly popular; hope you enjoy trying it if you haven’t made this one yet!
How to Make Low-Carb Ham and Cauliflower Casserole au Gratin:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe with nutritional information.)
- You need at least 6 cups of cauliflower, cut into small pieces.
- Cook the cauliflower in boiling salted water until it’s just getting soft; don’t overcook.
- Drain the cooked cauliflower well (at least 5 minutes).
- While the cauliflower cooks, cut up two cups of ham.
- Soften cream cheese in the microwave for a minute or so, then mix in the Greek yogurt (or sour cream), Parmesan, and sliced green onions.
- Mash the cauliflower slightly (in the pan you cooked it in) then stir in the sauce mixture so it’s completely mixed with the cauliflower and gently mix in the ham.
- Season to taste with fresh-ground black pepper.
- Spray the baking dish with nonstick spray or olive oil, put the casserole mixture in in the dish, and sprinkle with cheese.
- Bake 30-35 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted and starting to brown and the mixture is hot throughout and starting to slightly bubble.
- Let sit about 10 minutes for any liquid in the dish to be absorbed, then serve hot and enjoy! This will keep in the fridge for a few days and reheats well.
Make it a Low-Carb Meal:
Low-Carb Ham and Cauliflower Casserole au Gratin would taste great with Peperoncini Chopped Salad, American Greek Salad, or Caesar Salad with Kale, Romaine, and Shaved Parmesan for a low-carb meal.
