Cheesy Riced Cauliflower With Bacon

Hey, y’all – Happy Day 4 of Blogmas! Blogmas is a series that I am bringing to the blog this year (and hopefully in subsequent years) that will provide y’all with a new recipe every day of December through Christmas. How fun is that? Today I’m excited to be sharing my recipe for creamy, cheesy cauliflower rice. It’s a recipe full of flavor and keto friendly — so tasty that you won’t even realize it’s made with cauliflower (I promise!).

Cheesy Riced Cauliflower With Bacon

Creamy, Cheesy Cauliflower Rice

Creamy, Cheesy Cauliflower Rice


1 bag cauliflower rice, frozen or fresh (I buy it fresh from Trader Joe’s)

6 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped

1/2 block cream cheese

1 c. sharp cheddar cheese (or the cheese of your choice)

3 tbsp. sour cream

1 tbsp. minced garlic

2 tbsp. heavy cream

1.5 tbsp. Paprika (great for color!)

Kosher Salt, to taste

Black Pepper, to taste



  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Cook bacon to your desired doneness, allow to cool + chop.
  3. Over medium heat, add cauliflower rice, extra virgin olive oil, and garlic to a skillet. Cook it for 6-8 minutes, allowing it to sweat and to become tender. Add kosher salt and black pepper to taste.
  4. Reduce heat to low-medium and add in cream cheese, 1/2 c. sharp cheddar cheese, sour cream, heavy cream, and paprika. Mix together until well-incorporated.
  5. In a buttered oven-safe dish, add the creamy, cheesy cauliflower rice and top with an additional 1/2 c. of sharp cheddar cheese.
  6. Cook for 5-10 minutes and broil on high for 1 minute. Top with chopped bacon.
  7. Serve warm and enjoy!

This, my friends, is what I like to call “Write Your MeeMaw Good!”
