Searching for a delicious Keto Cauliflower Mac and Cheese recipe? You've found it! It's the epitome of cheesy comfort food. Packed with cream cheese, sharp cheddar, smoked gouda, and a burst of spices, you won't even notice the absence of carbs.
– 1 large head cauliflower cut into florets – 1 tablespoon olive oil – 1 cup heavy cream – 8 ounces cream cheese diced – 1 ½ cups shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese divided – 1 cup shredded smoked gouda cheese – 1 teaspoon garlic powder – 1 teaspoon ground mustard – ½ teaspoon sea salt – ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper – ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange the cauliflower florets in a single layer.
Drizzle with oil and toss. Bake for 18 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the cream to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat whisking often. Stir in cream cheese, and cook until the cream cheese melts.
Reduce heat to low. Stir in the ¾ cup of the cheddar cheese and the gouda cheese.
Sprinkle with the garlic powder, ground mustard, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Cook until the cheese melts, about 3 or 4 minutes.
Add the cauliflower to the pot and toss to coat. Transfer the mixture to a 9 x 9 casserole dish. Top with the remaining ¾ cup of cheddar cheese.
Bake for 20 minutes. If desired, you can broil for a few minutes to brown the top.
