What You'll Need For the Gratin
This recipe comes together fairly quickly and only needs a few kitchen tools:
- Large pot
- Baking dish
- Aluminum foil
That's it! Let's get to cooking!
How to Make Keto Cauliflower Gratin
First, preheat your oven to 350°F.
Combine the heavy cream and cream cheese in a large pot over heat medium-low heat.
Stir in mozzarella and Parmesan cheese until everything is combined. Then, add your spices.
Finally, add the chopped cauliflower and onion and toss to coat.
Once everything is combined, pour into a baking dish, top with extra Parmesan for garnish, top with foil and bake for 25 minutes.
To get the golden-brown “crust” on top, uncover the dish and bake at 400°F for another 5-10 minutes.
Can You Use Frozen Cauliflower?
Frozen vegetables are a great cost-efficient way to eat healthy, and they are just as nutritious as fresh vegetables.
This keto cauliflower gratin is all about the texture, so frozen cauliflower may end up getting soggy in the oven.
We recommend thawing your frozen cauliflower completely before using it in the recipe.
How to Store Leftovers
This Keto Cauliflower Gratin is best served hot and the whole family will want seconds!
If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
To reheat, simply pop into the oven for 10-15 minutes at 350°F to get the cheese warm and bubbly.
