Loaded Baked Cauliflower

This tastes just like a delicious creamy loaded baked potato. Be sure to not rice the cauliflower too finely for this recipe. I find that a bit of texture adds to its comparability to a baked potato. At only 4-5 g net carbs, this is an excellent side dish to a steak or salmon. This recipe helps to meet the complicated needs of my family. It’s keto, naturally gluten-free, and I can easily prepare some without bacon for my vegetarian child! Enjoy!
