This keto cheesy bacon cauliflower rice is the perfect side dish for your next meal. Cheese and bacon… What more can you ask for?
Anything with cheese and bacon is sure to be yummy. So, we decided to combine the two ingredients with the low-carb staple, cauliflower rice. I mean really? What could go wrong with that combination? The answer, of course, is… Nothing.
We love cauliflower rice around here. In fact, you might have made some of our Keto Cauliflower White Rice for a meal. Or, you might have thrown together some of our Japanese Keto Fried Rice to go along with one of our Asian-inspired dishes.
Cauliflower rice is incredibly easy to make. Take cauliflower florets and give them a spin in a food processor. Then, throw that into a nice hot skillet with some olive oil or butter, and a delicious side is created. You’ve probably made it before in some form. If not, this is a great opportunity to create a delicious main course or side dish!
Of course, the cheese is a wonderful extra element to the dish, making it gooey and utterly delicious. All of these taste elements are combined to make this a wonderful side dish (or main dish, depending), especially during the cool fall months and cold winter months.
This would be the perfect creation for you to make the next time you are wondering “what should I fix.” You might even have all of the necessary elements already in your fridge.
Go ahead and give it a shot.
Making it is easy, but trust me. Eating it is even easier.
