Full of tender florets and crispy, crumbled bacon, this cheesy broccoli cauliflower casserole is a total keto dream. The veggies are tossed in a rich mixture of sour cream, cream cheese, and heavy cream, then everything’s layered together in a casserole dish and baked until hot and melty. It’s a side dish that’s SO easy to make and will have everyone reaching for seconds!
What Makes This Recipe So Good
- Three types of melty cheese, savory bacon crumbles, tangy sour cream, and tender broccoli and cauliflower florets – what could be better?!
- It’s a great dish if you need to use up fresh broccoli or cauliflower, but it works perfectly for those bags of frozen veggies in the back of your freezer, too! Honestly, those steamer bags are the perfect way to make this recipe even easier. I don’t know about you, but I’ll take all the help I can get!
- This is one recipe you can really have some fun with. Switch up the types of cheeses you use (I love a good pepperjack for some punch), season the veggies with different spices, use a BBQ bacon… really make it your own!
- If you’ve never steamed broccoli or cauliflower before, we’ve got a super easy-to-follow write-up on it here! You can also use frozen veggies that come in microwaveable steamer bags – just follow the instructions on the packaging.
- I highly recommend you shred your own cheese straight from the block. Prepackaged shredded cheeses use fillers and starches to prevent clumping, which add unnecessary carbs AND keep the cheese from melting properly. Shredding your own is super easy and quick!
