How do you make Loaded Cauliflower Au Gratin?

It’s really simple, actually. All you need is cauliflower, cream cheese, heavy cream, butter, cheese, and some spices.

(Side note – one of my favorite things about keto is that you can have a dish that is loaded with cream cheese, butter, and heavy cream, and have it still be considered dietetic. It’s obviously not dietetic in the traditional sense of the word, but it’s helping you get your fat macros in, so keep it coming!)

Steam the cauliflower till it’s tender, add cream cheese, butter, cream, spices, mix it all up, put it in an oven safe casserole dish, top with cheese, bake, done.

Easy peasy creamy deliciousness.
