Cheeseburger Cauliflower Casserole
As a kid, I loved eating Mac and Cheese. During the summer, my brother and me would live off of mac and cheese and grilled cheese sandwiches. This recipe is low carb and gluten free which makes it the perfect substitution for my childhood cravings.
We love cauliflower at our house. It is one vegetable that you can make into almost anything. I saw a recipe recently using cauliflower to make a cheese sauce that looked amazing.
This recipe uses a different ingredient called Glucomannan. I use it fairly often for thickening sauces. You can omit it if you don’t have any or check out my store and order some. Learn more about Glucomannan here.
I keep my glucomannan in a little shaker to make it easier to add to dishes.
This Cheeseburger Cauliflower Casserole is a good recipe to add to your weeknight rotations. It is quick and easy to throw together.
