Best-Ever Keto Mac and Cheese



Best-Ever Keto Mac and Cheese

If you're keto, you know there are a lot of no-nos in classic mac and cheese. This version takes out all the trouble children (ahem, PASTA) without sacrificing flavor. The pork rind topping is totally optional, but we think it adds a pleasant crunch.

Ingredients:


FOR THE MAC AND CHEESE:

  • Butter, for baking dish
  • 2 medium heads cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 c. heavy cream
  • 6 oz. cream cheese, cut into cubes
  • 4 c. shredded cheddar
  • 2 c. shredded mozzarella
  • 1 tbsp. hot sauce (optional)
  • Freshly ground black pepper

FOR THE TOPPING:

  • 4 oz. pork rinds, crushed
  • 1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley, for garnish


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375° and butter a 9”-x-13” baking dish. In a large bowl, toss cauliflower with 2 tablespoons oil and season with salt. Spread cauliflower onto two large baking sheets and roast until tender and lightly golden, about 40 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large pot over medium heat, heat cream. Bring up to a simmer, then decrease heat to low and stir in cheeses until melted. Remove from heat, add hot sauce if using and season with salt and pepper, then fold in roasted cauliflower. Taste and season more if needed.

  3. Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish. In a medium bowl stir to combine pork rinds, Parmesan, and oil. Sprinkle mixture in an even layer over cauliflower and cheese.

  4. Bake until golden, 15 minutes. If desired, turn oven to broil to toast topping further, about 2 minutes.

  5. Garnish with parsley before serving.
