What’s not to love about this low carb casserole? It’s a deconstructed bacon cheeseburger in the form of a casserole with cauliflower! It’s literally the perfect low carb casserole and it’s actually really easy to make too!
The key to this cauliflower casserole is to first roast cauliflower. This will make them crispy and blend wonderfully with the remaining ingredients!
Can you use cauliflower rice instead of cauliflower florets?
Absolutely! In fact, you can use pre-riced cauliflower rice to save you some time. I choose to use florets which take little more time to roast because my girls enjoy grabbings the florets and dipping them into ketchup. Whatever works! 🙂
Does ketchup contain sugar?
Ketchup does contain sugar but you can choose to buy store buy sugar-free ketchup or making your own with my recipe below!
More Bacon Cheeseburger toppings
You can choose to top or add into your casserole any burger topping you like! I kept it simple and added a layer of sugar-free ketchup and topped the casserole with bacon but you can also add pickles and even onions!
After the casserole is done you can either top your burger casserole with shredded lettuce and tomatoes or serve it on the side!
