This keto bacon and smoked gouda cauliflower puree is the only low carb cauliflower mash recipe you’ll ever need. Like, all others need not apply. It’s just THAT GOOD.
This keto bacon and smoked gouda cauliflower puree is so amazing, that even though after tasting it I immediately wanted to hide in the closet with a giant spoon rather than waste time taking photos of it, my conscience wouldn’t allow me NOT to share it with you TONIGHT!
What is this ambrosia of which I speak? It’s so simple, yet so sublime, and like many of my favorites, born of a desperate desire for something tasty for dinner – cobbled together quickly and with whatever I have on hand.
I started with a batch of of the “Better than Potatoes” Cheesy Cauliflower Puree, and then I added a few of slices of cooked bacon, and a chunk of Smoked Gouda cheese. I pureed until smooth and heated it in the microwave for another minute – then topped it with a decadent pat of butter and some more kosher salt.
It’s silky, smoky, bacony perfection in every bite!
So much better than even your wildest imagination could…er…imagine.
In addition to solving my what’s for dinner dilemma (for the rest of my life) this bacon and smoked gouda cauliflower puree recipe has also caused me to have an epiphany. Dear friends, I have been looking at my family situation all wrong!
You see, it used to upset me that Mr. Hungry and Hungry Jr. were immune to the joys of cauliflower. Despite my repeated attempts to lure them over to the cauliflower fan club, they have thus far remained unconvinced of it’s virtues.
This recipe made me realize that MY LIFE IS PERFECT AS IT IS! I first tasted this and thought, “I bet they would actually LIKE this one,” which was immediately followed by “but then I would have to SHARE it, and that would JUST.NOT.DO.”
So I slunk into my office with my still steaming bowl – where I sit now, writing this post and taking intermittent bites, all while keeping an eye on the door to make sure nobody comes wandering in looking for a life-altering taste!
Oh don’t feel too bad for the guys – I’ll share a batch with them…. eventually….
Meanwhile, I’ll be stocking up on Smoked Gouda and cauliflower like a maniac (my freezer is already full of bacon of course!) Your local Costco is out of Smoked Gouda? Sorry, that was me.
So get thee some Smoked Gouda (while you still can), a head of cauliflower, and some bacon, then put this amazing keto cauliflower puree together ASAP!
If your family already likes cauliflower, my sage advice to you is:
a) HIDE, or b) Make A LOT!
Now I’m off to get back to this week’s Keto Menu Plan – which will, you guessed it, feature this steaming bowl of deliciousness! In fact, I might just put it down for breakfast, lunch, and dinner EVERY SINGLE DAY. (Wow, that would actually make my night go a lot faster….) Ok, I won’t really, but it would be AWESOME if I DID!
In fact I guarantee that after you taste this bacon and smoked gouda cauliflower puree recipe, you’ll wish I had! ;)Print
