Ready In:
2 sandwiches




  • Preheat an oven to 450 degrees.
  • Add the cauliflower rice to a large microwave safe. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 6-8 minutes. Stir every two minutes until the cauliflower is cooked through.
  • When cool enough to handle, place the cauliflower in a clean kitchen towel and wring out the excess liquid.
  • To a bowl add the cooked cauliflower rice, eggs and grated parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper and mix until the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  • Lightly spray a parchment paper lined sheet tray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Divide the cauliflower mixture in 4. Using your hands press and shape the mixture to resemble a slice of bread. Repeat process until you have 4 slices of bread.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese on to two pieces of the cauliflower.
  • Using a spatula, carefully place a piece of cauliflower bread on top of each sandwich. Place back in oven and cook until the cheese has melted, about 3 minutes.

    The recipe calls for baking the “bread” 20 min. And the video 3 min. Which is correct?

    What makes this grilled cheese with cauliflower so high in carbs??

    Why is the riced cauliflower that brownish color?

    Wow the carb count is way too high for a keto diet. Please don’t advertise this as keto and mislead people. It should just say gluten free.

    I was looking at the carb count and it seemed very high for something that is supposed to be low carb? 227.6 - is this a mistake?

    Sounds delicious but definitely not Keto. You are an amazing chef and I wish you can make some keto recipes for your keto followers as well as put the serving sizes down in the recipes.

    Hello. I think it’s safe to assume that the complaint about the carb rate being high is that this is the total carb, not the Net Carb, which seems to scare off a lot of people. Cauliflower has high carb, but a great portion is ‘net’ so I believe this is safe. Happy eats!
