This is super easy.
As I was eating it, I realized that it is almost identical to the Broccoli Casserole I love, only the broccoli one is eaten raw.
What I used:
I head of cauliflower, broken into florets.
1/2 cup of mayo (maybe a little bit more)
1/2 cup of sour cream (def a little bit more)
Dry Ranch dressing powder, a tbl or so. I just shook a little in there
At least 10 slices of bacon, cooked, crumbled
1 cup of Sharp Cheddar, 1 cup of Colby Jack
Heat your oven to 350°
All you gotta do is boil/steam the caulifower until kind of soft. I had it on the stove for about 18 minutes.
Cook the bacon, crumble.
In a bowl, combine the SC, mayo, any dry seasonings you want, (I put in garlic powder), s&p, the Ranch powder, half of the bacon, and the sharp cheddar. Mix it about, then throw in the cauliflower and stir well.
Throw it in an 8x8 pan (I think? Not the one that is as wide as my oven), and then top it with the rest of the bacon and the cup of Colby Jack.
Cover with foil and bake 20 minutes-ish, then uncover and bake 7ish minutes to make sure it's all melted, and slightly brown.
I may have went back for seconds.
I saw this recipe on one of the Low Carb group posts that I follow.
The instructions were simple:
1 tbl Stevia (or sweetener of your choice)
1 tbl Unsweetened Cocoa powder
2 oz softened cream cheese
2 oz softened butter
3 oz whipped heavy whipping cream
I mixed the sweetener with the butter and stirred.
Mix in the cream cheese, stir.
Mix in the cocoa powder, stir.
Now I have watched Ree Drummond whip heavy whipping cream many times, but mine did not look like hers.
It also said to add slowly into the mixture, and I just dumped it in there.
It ALSO said to put it in small, individual cups, but damn hell I have like three 44oz Taco Bell cups and the one green glass I drink margaritas out of.
I put it in a glass pan and refrigerated for 30 minutes:
I documented the entire thing live on the Marco Polo app, but I don't think you can save any streams from there.
I did screen shot when Scott took a bite:
I said, "It can't be THAT bad!!"
He was like:
He said it was very bitter and needed more sweetener.
On video, I took a bite. Not very flattering, but it was indeed bitter.
I will try again, using more sweetener, and turning the mixer up higher.
Nothing will ever be as bad as The Hall of Shame Brownies ......
What you'll need^^^
1 lb ground beed
1 head of cauliflower
1 can of diced tomatoes w/ green chili's (Rotel)
Chili powder, onion powder, cumin, s&p
2 cups of cheese, I used Colby Jack
A counter top that should have been wiped off first.
I am still attempting to low-carb it. Hate.
I keep seeing stuff with cauliflower rice, and I always said "well I'm not doing it!"
I did it.
I loathe white rice, and in my Lisa-brain, it was going to be hard smelly grainy rice.
Below is the recipe, and the "how-to" to making cauliflower rice.
Or how I made it, anyway. Ya'll know I have no common sense when it comes to cooking.
I washed a head of cauliflower, broke it apart into slightly large pieces.
And then just grate it:
Fun fact. This stuff flies everywhere. After I was finished I swept up a pile from the counter top, my shirt, the floor....
After I finished grating, I transferred it to a paper towel and mashed the fire out of to get rid of any water.
I put a swish or two of EVOO in the skillet and stirred it around. I kept the lid on it as much as possible to trap all of the steam.
I cooked it 8 minutes, then dumped it back in the bowl and put the skillet lid on it.
I am a professional that way.
Now in a perfect world, you could be doing all of this while browning the ground beef.
I don't live in that type of world.
Brown the beef, drain.....
I took the seasonings and put half in the rice, half in the meat, then stir separately.
I added the can of Rotel and more onion powder, stirred, then added in the rice. Stir more.
Add in half of the cheese, and guess what? You stir.
When everything is completely mixed, you can add in more things in you like, olives, etc, but I don't have that kind of fancy kitchen.
Top with the remaining cheese, put a lid on it, let it melt, then serve.
It's ugly, but yummy. You can tweak the seasonings to make sure it's full of flavor.
Meanwhile, I bought yet another flamingo thing....
If it worked for me, it can surely work for you. I can't use the oven for squat.
These are super simple, tasty, and well....cheese.
All you need is thinly sliced cheese, your choice:
Fold it so there are four squares a slice, as many as you want, then place on parchment paper into a 250° oven for 35 minutes.
This particular cheese has 1 carb for 3 slices.
So maybe I have never used parchment paper before.
No fires, no one died......
I sprinkled a very small pinch of salt on them.
Let us pretend that I didn't have a second piece of meat hidden on the side.....
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
