The Baked Potato Alternative

I love potatoes, as I’ve previously stated on here before. Every kind. Fries. Tots. Hash browns. Potato cakes. You name it. However, I don’t miss any of them as much as I miss a good ole loaded baked potato to go with my steaks, chicken or barbeque! My husband and I were missing it a lot until I did this recipe.

Loaded Cauliflower Casserole

A great low carb alternative to those loaded baked potato cravings.

Recipe Notes

  • I prefer sharp cheddar cheese.
  • You can use lower fat cheese or sour cream to lower calories and fat.  It isn’t quite the same, but you know your dietary needs best.
  • I could pretty much eat this whole casserole myself.
  • You can do a lot of what you do with back potatoes with this i.e. add steamed broccoli or barbecued meat, etc.
