I’m a believer in the casserole as a dinner solution for busy families, and this loaded cauliflower casserole might just be one of my favorite easy casserole recipes.
This loaded cauliflower casserole is bursting with flavor—all the RIGHT flavors—that is. This casserole takes cauliflower to a whole new level thanks to yummy ingredients like sour cream, lots of cheese and bacon.
While this isn’t exactly a light (okay, it’s not light AT ALL) recipe, but hey, at least you’re replacing the potatoes or pasta that might have taken up the bulk of a similar casserole recipe with a low-carb vegetable. Three cheers for vegetables!
Even my kids who aren’t typically huge fans of cauliflower love this cheesy and delicious loaded cauliflower casserole recipe.
Come to think of it, and the thought literally just popped into my head, if you wanted to add some more nutrition here you could use half cauliflower and half broccoli in this dish.
Whether this loaded cauliflower casserole is a main dish or a side dish is up for debate.

For me, personally, I could easily make a warm bowl of this casserole my entire dinner, but you can serve it alongside your favorite meat and a garden salad.
If you wanted to beef-up the casserole (err… chicken-it-up?) you could shred some rotisserie chicken and add it to the dish prior to baking.
When I was a kid my mom would always steam a pan of cauliflower and then sprinkle a bunch of cheddar cheese on top. She and I would eat a huge plate of that stuff and it’s what made me grow to love cauliflower when I was younger.
This loaded cauliflower casserole recipe reminds me of the cheesy plates of cauliflower that my mom would whip-up, but WAY BETTER.
The crispy bacon in this cauliflower casserole really sends it over the top. It adds a nice crunch that pairs nicely with the creamy steamed cauliflower and cheese.
