Loaded Baked Cheesy Cauliflower

Want an award winning side dish? This right here will bring down the house. It’s packed with flavor and is perfectly fit for the Keto lifestyle. You won’t be disappointed. We seen many version flying around the internet and decided to give it a try. I can honestly say, hands down, this is probably one of the best side dishes we’ve made. Hope you enjoy.


  • 1 Large head cauliflower
  • 1 Cup mayo
  • 1 cup powdered parmesan
  • Bacon crumbles
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Paprika


Prep your cauliflower head. Remove the leaves and butt from the bottom. Don’t cut too deep, you need the head to stay in tact.

While you are prepping your cauliflower, start boiling a pot of water stove top. It needs to be deep enough to cover the entire head. Once the water is boiling, place the head in the water and boil for 6 minutes. Remove from the water and place on a baking sheet lined with foil. (It’s gonna be hot!!)

In a bowl, let’s prepare the topping. Add your 1 cup of mayo, 1 cup of parmesan, pepper and garlic powder, mix well until blended.

Now let’s smother the cauliflower with the topping. Coat the entire outside using the entire contents of the bowl. Put it on nice and thick. We used a rubber spatula and it spread very easily.

Once you are coated, top with bacon crumbles, add some paprika and pop her in the oven. You will bake for 15-16 minutes at 375 degrees.

At the end, pull it out and sprinkle a bit of cheddar on top if you desire. Pop back in a minute or 2 to melt. Once done, pull out and enjoy. It’s fantastic!
