  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced

How Do You Make Baked Loaded Cauliflower Casserole

In a large cast iron skillet, fry up the bacon until desired crispness. Remove bacon from the skillet and cut into small pieces. Set aside.

While cauliflower is baking, combine the sour cream, cream cheese, and heavy cream into a large mixing bowl. Mix well. Add garlic, 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, 1 cup chopped bacon and chives. Add salt and pepper to desired amount.

When cauliflower has finished roasting in the oven, mix it into the large bowl with the combined ingredients above.

Serve hot.

Can You Prepare Loaded Baked Cauliflower in Advance?

Yes! This is one of my favorite side dish recipes to prepare in advance. To do this, follow the directions but instead of baking, you can cover the bowl you mixed the casserole in and place in the fridge. You could also place it in a refrigerator storage container.

When ready to bake, remove from oven and place in a glass baking casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees until hot.

How to Store Loaded Cauliflower Casserole

To store, place in an airtight storage container and store for up to three days.

How to Reheat Loaded Cauliflower

Reheat leftovers in the oven at 350 degrees until hot. If you have a microwave, you can rewarm the leftovers until heated through.

What Main Dish Goes with Baked Loaded Cauliflower?

This casserole is the perfect side dish. Here are some ideas that you could serve it with:

Beef: Serve this casserole with our families favorite, Herb and Cheese Meatloaf

Pork: These delicious Cast Iron Baked Pork Chops would be a great main dish to serve along side the casserole.

Tips on Making Loaded Cauliflower Casserole

  • After baking the cauliflower, I like to turn the oven to broil and roast until slightly brown. Watch it carefully to be sure it doesn’t burn.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper. I always enjoy a little extra pepper on mine.
  • Use full fat cream cheese, sour cream and cheese. I promise it just tastes better.
  • Love bacon? Feel free to add more to the recipe than what the recipe says. Can you really ever have to much bacon?
  • This casserole is delicious reheated and eaten the next day for lunch. It is very filling.
