Keto Bacon-Wrapped Cauliflower

Want to make this keto vegetarian-pleasant? Easy—omit the bacon! If you want, mix up a touch minced garlic and olive oil to comb on the out of doors earlier than baking. Since you don’t want to worry approximately crisping any bacon, you could escape with a shorter bake time—10 minutes at 450° should do the trick.

Keto Bacon-Wrapped Cauliflower

Keto Bacon-Wrapped Cauliflower


1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 c. lemon juice

Kosher salt

head cauliflower leaves removed and stems trimmed so cauliflower lays flat, but still intact
(10-oz.) package frozen spinach, thawed, water squeezed out and chopped
large eggs, beaten
green onions, thinly sliced
cloves garlic, minced
3/4 c. shredded cheddar
4 oz. cream cheese softened and cubed
1/2 c. panko
1/4 c. grated Parmesan
1 lb. thinly sliced bacon


  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Bring 8 cups water, oil, lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons salt to a boil in a large pot. Add cauliflower and bring back to a boil. Reduce to a gentle simmer and place a plate on top of the cauliflower to keep it submerged. Simmer until a knife easily inserts into the center, about 12 minutes.
  2. Using 2 slotted spoons or a mesh spider, transfer cauliflower to a small rimmed baking sheet. Let cool.
  3. Meanwhile, combine spinach, eggs, green onions, garlic, cheddar, cream cheese, panko, and Parmesan and place in a piping bag with a ¾-inch tip.
  4. Position cooled cauliflower stem side up on a rimmed baking sheet. Pipe filling between stalks of florets. Flip cauliflower stem side down, then lay strips of bacon, just slightly overlapping strips, over cauliflower, tucking ends of strips into the bottom of the cauliflower.
  5. Roast, rotating sheet halfway through, until golden all over, about 30 minutes.
