Loaded Cauliflower Bites
Updated: Oct 29, 2019
Loaded Cauliflower Bites are a low-carb, gluten free alternative to loaded potato skins, or french fries, yet equally as delicious! Depending on the type of nutrition plan you follow, this is either a healthy recipe, or a guilty pleasure.
WHAT YOU NEED:
Nonstick cooking spray, for pan
1 large head of cauliflower, cut into florets (about 3 cups)
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 tbsp. finely chopped chives
WHAT YOU DO:
Preheat oven to 425° and grease a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook cauliflower until fork tender, about 5 minutes, then drain and pat dry.
Spread florets out in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Using a potato masher, or the bottom of a small glass, lightly smash the cauliflower florets.
Top each smashed cauliflower floret with a pinch of cheddar cheese and some bacon, then bake until cheese is melted and crispy around the edges, about 15 minutes.
Sprinkle chives over cauliflower and serve warm or at room temperature.
