Keto Cheesy Cauliflower & Ground Beef Casserole Recipe: Low-Carb Comfort Food

Keto recipes is the No. 1 searched diet plan term on the internet. That means lots of people are on the keto diet plan. Cauliflowerground beef, cheese and sour cream all top the most-used keto ingredients list. This easy cauliflower and ground beef casserole recipe uses all of them!

Ground beef, onion, garlic, Italian seasoning and paprika are cooked together in a skillet. Sour cream, chopped steamed cauliflower and a shredded Italian cheese blend is mixed in, then the mixture is transferred to a baking dish and topped with more cheese. The low-carb casserole recipe bakes for only 10 minutes, just to melt the cheese. Fabulous!

If you don't feel like turning on your oven, you could top the cauliflower and ground beef with the cheese, cover and let it melt on the stovetop. It will taste just as fabulous. If you don't feel like chopping and steaming fresh cauliflower, use a bag of frozen riced cauliflower cooked according to package directions instead.

Serve this easy ground beef casserole with a fresh vegetable or a salad. The leftovers reheat well and are great for lunch the day.
