Just Like Loaded Baked Potatoes Casserole

"This is an awesome low-carb version of loaded baked potatoes, and tastes far better than any version of mock potatoes that I have tried. In fact, this dish is soooo good, you will not believe it! I do not remember where I got this recipe, but it is a fabulous side to any low-carb meal. You will be pleased, I promise! Yum! Yum!"

Ready In:


  • 2 12 cups cooked cauliflower (I use frozen, cooked until tender, in the microwave)
  • 1 cup sour cream (low fat works here, too)
  • 34 cup shredded cheddar cheese (full-fat works best)
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 3 -6 slices crumpled cooked bacon or 3 -6 slices turkey bacon
  • salt and pepper


  • Pre-heat oven to 350.
  • Chop cooked cauliflower into very small pieces.
  • Mix sour cream, 1/2 of the green onions, 1/2 of the cheese, 1/2 of the bacon, and salt and pepper to taste in medium bowl.
  • Stir in the cauliflower.
  • Place in medium baking dish and sprinkle remaining cheese and bacon on top.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the remaining green onions on top just before serving.

    This was absolutely delicious. I am not necessarily a fan of cauliflower but this intrigued me. I cooked the cauliflower in chicken stock and also added some finely diced red onion. I had guests over for dinner and everyone loved it. Thanks for sharing, Helping Hands, this is a keeper.

    This stuff is 100% amazing! Even my non low carb friends love it and my small children love it too. I use cream cheese in mine- a whole 8oz package and I use more cauliflower. Since I'm usually out of green onions, I find that the dried chives work very well! This is a super easy and tasty dish for anyone, not just low carbers!!

    I make this recipe but use 4 oz reduced fat cream cheese. It's creamier and delicious! I make this all the time in place of potatoes.

    This is my new favorite recipe! I really love that I can have something close to mashed potatoes on my Atkins lifestyle! The bacon and cheese are amazing. I put cheddar cheese on the top at the end and put in in the broiler and it makes a nice, cheesy topping! Even my 15 year old son chose this over mashed potatoes at dinner!

    This is a great low carb dish! I'm a potato fanatic and while there is no substitute for the real thing, this came in as a good second choice. I added some chopped red onion and some grated parmesan since I had them lying around. It is also good warmed up in the oven the next day.

    This was yummy! I subbed plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream and garlic for the onions as I can't eat onions. Both my boys ate it!

    I broiled it for a few minutes to crisp it up a little and then added fresh chopped basil. Rosemary would be great too. I used a large head of cauliflower so I used 3 cups of low fat sour cream. I also cheated and used bacon bits. So easy to make!

    I just made this. I added fresh green beans (lightly steamed) and diced up some green onions. This was fantastic. Will do again.

    Great recipe, I use natural yoghurt instead of sour cream and add a teaspoon of chilli flakes to liven it up. I also mix breadcrumbs with the cheese for a crunchy golden topping, its a favourite in our house


2007 I thought that I would edit my home page...its been over two years, so I its time to update! I have lived in beautiful New Mexico for the last few years (Albuquerque), after 20 years of living on the West Coast (San Francisco and Seattle). I love many things about New Mexico - the perfect weather, in particular; the sunsets; the open land; and the great Southwest food - but also sometimes miss the energy of bigger cities. I am a mental health therapist, who loves my work! I love to cook (a passion that I discovered after getting married). Rather than cooking a few favorites on a regular basis, I prefer to collect recipes (primarily from the Internet), and try new things often (in fact, my husband jokes that he will try a new dish that he loves and then never see it again :-)). I also love to read, write, travel, work on personal growth, and study/learn. I am a total water baby, who lives in the desert, so I love traveling to tropical locations, where I especially love to snorkle and boggie board! I am very happily married to my best friend, soulmate, partner, and greatest cheerleader and supporter, and we have three grown children, and four grandchildren (so far :-))I am a total foodie (I "live to eat" instead of "eat to live.") :-) I love everything about food...cooking; the delicious scents of a yummy dish, as it cooks; the beautiful presentation of wonderful food; dining out; dining in; the taste of great food; sitting around the table, with friends and family, eating, talking and laughing; nurturing those I love by cooking for them...all of the senusal pleasures that food brings! My favorite Internet site for yummy recipes is this one - and I almost always choose recipes with five-star ratings, so please keep on reviewing! :-)
