For all you low-carb eaters out there, this one is for you! I have been making this exceptionally tasty Cauliflower Sausage Casserole for nearly two years. I am so excited to share this recipe with you!!
When I started doing Atkins a few years ago, I wanted to find a dish that could substitute my love for potatoes, without all the carbs.
Cooked cauliflower is an excellent alternative because it has that mashed potato texture. So I started googling what pairs well with cauliflower and found a mock hash brown casserole recipe. I started experimenting with the ingredients and making modifications. After trial and error many times over, I can say now that I’m fully satisfied. The flavor and that hint of heat make it one of my favorite dinners to make!
I was so hungry that I only remembered to snap a picture after it was taken out of the oven. Take a look at that gooey cheese!
In our house, we like to spice it up by adding a tablespoon of crushed red pepper. It gives it that little kick. I practically add red pepper to everything these days. Needless to say, we like our heat. However it will still taste great without it.
When you dish up this casserole, it will look runny, due to the water that gets released from the water content of the cauliflower. There is no getting around that. Simply scoop the casserole with a holed spoon to drain the excess.
