Cauliflower mac and cheese is one of my favorite ways to get that mac and cheese fix, when you’re going low carb.
It’s cheesy, has that baked on crust goodness that you love from a mac and cheese dish. It works for a carb-less dish and as a side for the whole family.
To keep the lactose count down, to keep this keto friendly, I’m using cream cheese to add and nice creaminess to this cauliflower mac and cheese, without needing to use whole milk.
Everything else cooks similar to mac and cheese. Just let it bake until the top gets nice and brown and crispy.
