Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 8 to 10 minutes
Total Time: 13 to 15 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 2 cups grated cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 teaspoons light olive oil
  • 3 ounces low-fat cheese

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Mix together the cauliflower, egg, almond flour, salt and pepper until combined.
  2. In a heavy sauté pan, heat 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 teaspoon of olive oil over medium-low heat. To test if the oil/butter mixture is hot enough, drop a small piece of the cauliflower mixture into the pan and if bubbles form around the edges, the oil is ready.
  3. Carefully place two 1/4 cup scoops of the cauliflower mixture into the pan and cook for 2 minutes or until the pancakes are browning on the bottom. Flip the pancake over carefully with a spatula and place the cheese so it is equally divided on one pancake. Cook for 1 more minute then place the second pancake on top of the cheese and press down. Cook for 30 seconds then flip over the grilled cheese pancake sandwich, press down and cook for 30 more seconds.
  4. Place the hot grilled cheese pancake on the paper towels to drain. Repeat this process.

this. looks. so. good!
I prefer low carb recipes for my keto diet plan and hence Easy Low-Carb Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe is my latest favorite. As it is a grilling recipe, I prefer using ghee as a safe oil. I use ghee here to replace for butter and olive oil as grilling and baking with ghee is a safer option than baking with other oils.
