Cauliflower in a creamy cheese sauce is a perfect keto recipe and delicious to boot! Make sure you season well with salt and pepper (nutmeg tastes great as well) otherwise it will taste too bland.



  • ½ head cauliflower florets 
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese 
  • ½ cup heavy cream 
  • 1 pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 

Directions Instructions 

  • Step 1 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). 
  • Step 2 Bring a large pot of slightly salted water to a boil and cook cauliflower until tender but firm to the bite, about 10 minutes. Drain. 
  • Step 3 Combine Cheddar cheese, cream, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Arrange cauliflower in a casserole dish and cover with cheese mixture. 
  • Step 4 Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is bubbly and golden brown, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Note: Feel free to use other types of cheeses. I often use up whatever I have sitting around in the fridge.
