Instant Pot Instructions

You can choose to steam your cauliflower in your instant pot instead of boiling, which is my favorite way to soften the cauliflower. Remove the stem and core from the cauliflower. Next, break apart the cauliflower florets and place them into the instant pot along with one cup of water.

Close the lid and set it to seal. Set to steam on high for 15 mins, or use the steam preset and select broccoli. Release the steam when it is done. Next, strain the cauliflower to remove any excess water and continue with the recipe.

In a large mixing bowl add your cheeses, sour cream, green onions, and 4 pieces of chopped cooked bacon. If you want a creamier consistency, you can add the optional heavy whipping cream as well.

Add the drained cauliflower and use a potato masher or mixing whisk to get to the desired consistency. Spread it into a casserole dish, top with cheddar cheese and remaining bacon. Bake 15-20 minutes and this hearty keto twice baked cauliflower casserole is ready!

Cauliflower and Ham au Gratin

Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat to 500 degrees or preheat the broiler. In a large pot, bring a few inches of water to a boil, salt it, add the cauliflower and cook until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and return to the pot.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook for 3 minutes. Sprinkle in the flour and stir for 1 minute. Whisk in the wine, then the milk heat through and season with sea salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. Cook until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the mustard and gruyere until melted, then remove from the heat.

Stir the ham and the gruyere sauce into the cauliflower, then transfer to a large, shallow casserole. Top with the parmigiano-reggiano and bake or broil until brown and bubbly, about 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with the parsley.

Tips for Perfect Cheese Sauce (not grainy or gritty)

Have you ever made a mac and cheese that wasn’t creamy or smooth? Instead if was grainy or gritty? The worst! Here’s a few steps you should take for perfectly creamy cheese sauce.

  1. Use real cheese. First step to success is to start with real cheese. I used a good quality sharp cheddar to give this dish maximum flavor.
  2. You’re not limited to just cheddar. You can play around with different cheese combinations like Havarti, White Cheddar, Monterey Jack, etc.
  3. Shred your own cheese. For this recipe, grating your own cheese will give you the smoothest results.
  4. Start with a white sauce. A white sauce is made with butter or olive oil stirred with flour and milk. It thickens once it cools, then you stir the cheese into it to make your cheese sauce.
  5. Do NOT add the cheese to boiling sauce. When adding the cheese, remove the white sauce from the heat completely before adding the cheese. I usually move this to a different burner so it stops boiling. You don’t want to add the cheese to the mixture if it’s boiling/bubbling. Doing so will cause the cheese to break down causing a gritty texture.
  6. Add the cheese a little at a time. I usually do this 1/4 cup at a time, whisking in between until it’s all melted.

1 cup all-purpose or whole-wheat flour

1 teaspoon sweet or smoked paprika

2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil or melted butter

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Cut the cauliflower into bite-size florets.

3. In a bowl, whisk the flour with up to 1 cup water, ¼ cup at a time, until you have a batter the consistency of cream thick enough to coat a finger or spoon. Add the garlic powder, paprika and cumin season with salt and pepper.

4. Coat the florets in the batter and lay them on the prepared baking tray, leaving plenty of space between each floret.

5. Bake until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Carefully remove the tray from the oven.

6. In a large bowl, mix the hot sauce and oil or butter. Add the baked florets and toss to coat.

7. Return the cauliflower to the baking sheet and put it back in the oven until the cauliflower is slightly charred, 10 to 14 minutes.

Baked Cheesy Cauliflower Dip

Your guests will never guess that there's a whole head of cauliflower hidden in this creamy, tangy, and totally addictive party dip.

Every holiday party needs a great dip, and this baked cheesy cauliflower dip is sure to be a hit at yours!

We’ve made this dip so many times over the past few weeks perfecting the recipe. I have to tell you that it’s been such a joy because it’s FREEZING outside and there is truly no greater comfort in life than having a hot skillet of creamy, cheesy goodness bubbling and baking away in the oven.

Ordinarily, I’d give “party dip” a bit of a sideways glance – I’m not a huge fan of the who-knows-what ingredients plus a brick of cream cheese that are often in them. But I like to think of this dip as a Love & Lemons-does-Midwest-style party dip. Pureed cauliflower, Greek yogurt, and a touch of Dijon mustard blend together to create its creamy base. I top it with cauliflower florets, scallions, and a layer of Roth Grand Cru – a nutty alpine-style cheese that’s made nearby (to us) in Wisconsin – that creates the most perfect flavorful, golden, bubbly crust on top.

How to Make Cauliflower Dip

Start by breaking your cauliflower into small florets. Lightly boil it, then blend 3/4 of the cauliflower to create the dip’s base, while reserving the remaining florets to layer in for texture.

Blend the cauliflower with Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, and a good pinch of salt. I love how the yogurt adds a bit of tang and the cauliflower becomes lusciously creamy. These flavors work so perfectly with the delicious, mild flavor of the Roth Grand Cru that gets melted on top.

We seriously love this cheese – it’s great on cheese boards, and it melts beautifully on this dip. Roth uses rBST-free milk sourced within 60 miles of its creamery to make its cheese, so this is really great quality Wisconsin cheese.

Pour the creamy mixture into a skillet and layer it with scallions, cauliflower florets, and grated cheese.

That’s it – it’s ready to bake!

Bake until the dip is golden and bubbly. Meanwhile, slice & toast your baguette so it’s ready for dipping!
