I like a big breakfast and thought that living a Keto Lifestyle limited my breakfast choices. A little experimentation corrected that notion.
Truth be told, I failed miserably on my first attempt at this recipe. I envisioned a perfectly browned patty that resembled hash browns on the outside but inside had the creamy deliciousness of cheesy grits. Not so much. The ingredients were fine, it was that I thought using a lightly oiled cast iron pan would give me the results I wanted. Instead I ended up with a burned mess that was impossible to turn. Strike One!
The second attempt though nailed it! #ThisGirlLovesToEat
Cheesy Keto Cauli-Grits
- 2 Cups Shredded Cauliflower
- 4 oz Cream Cheese
- 1/4 Cup Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
- 1/2 tsp Freshly Ground Pepper
- 1/4 tsp Freshly Ground Sea Salt
Tip: I used my Vitamix to pulse the cauliflower down to rice sized crumbles.
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Using a food processor, blender, or Vitamix, combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, salt & pepper, and cauliflower. Process until combined but not completely smooth.
Scoop the mixture (about 1/4 cup) into mounds about 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Lightly press each mound down to about 1/2″ thickness.
Bake in 350° oven for 18-20 minutes, or until tops turn golden brown. Remove from oven and leave on baking sheet to cool for 5 minutes.
Serve alongside scrambled eggs and bacon for a perfect Keto breakfast, or alongside beef, chicken, or fish for a perfect dinner side dish.
