Jalapeno Popper Cauliflower Casserole (Low Carb and Gluten Free)
As you know, Mondays are for low carb meatball recipes here on IBIH. Lately, I feel like I’ve also gotten into the habit of posting variations of the low carb cauliflower casserole recipes on Wednesdays.
I’m not committing to a cauliflower Wednesday or anything – though I probably could, since this cauliflower casserole alone is so versatile that there is no end to the flavor combinations one could come up with!
It’s a delicious rut to be stuck in, and I plan to explore the many possibilities over the coming months (though not always on Wednesdays, because let’s face it, I’m not that organized.)
My latest low carb cauliflower creation is this Jalapeno Popper Cauliflower Casserole. It’s an impossible task to figure out which is my favorite so far between this one, the insanely popular Pepperoni Pizza Cauliflower Casserole, or the Mexican inspired Cheesy Chipotle Cauliflower Casserole.
Honestly, they are all fantastic. Let’s just say that I love this one AT LEAST as much as the others, if not a hair more.
Creamy, cheesy, spicy – this recipe has it all! Super kid friendly (and picky husband friendly too), this recipe makes a great low carb side dish, though I’ve also eaten it with a salad as a main course. I hope you guys will love it at least as much as I do!
As a side note, as you can see by the photos we cooked this in our new Wood Fired Oven that Mr. Hungry built – it works just as well in a regular oven though, or even the microwave, if you’re pressed for time with all of the back to school chaos coming up!
One last thing, the pictures don’t show it, but when I ate it leftover the next day I added some crumbled bacon on top – Mind. Blown. I’ve listed the bacon as optional in the recipe (crazy, right?) since without it, this dish is vegetarian friendly as well. Otherwise, you can, and should, feel free to pile bacon on this sucker with wild and reckless abandon!
Do you have a favorite cauliflower casserole so far? I’d love to hear which – and also any ideas you might have for another flavor combo you’d like to see me try. As always I look forward to your comments and suggestions!
In other news, I recently enrolled The Gluten Free Low Carber in the Amazon KDP select program, so you can now borrow it for FREE if you are an Amazon Prime member! I hope you enjoy it – if so, please consider leaving a positive review on Amazon! Thanks!
