Keto Loaded Mashed Cauliflower Casserole Our New Thanksgiving Favorite

This can be a difficult time of year to stay on the healthy lifestyle track. With so many events and gatherings during the holiday season, especially revolving around food, you can lose your way pretty quickly. In addition, you don’t want to be the odd one out, bringing special food only you would eat. That is why I love this Keto Loaded Mashed Cauliflower Casserole recipe. Over the years, I have tweaked it to be something my family really enjoys.

My healthy alternative to twice baked potatoes: 
Keto Loaded Mashed Cauliflower Casserole

When you can bring something that sounds (and looks) delicious that everyone can enjoy, you don’t feel deprived. This recipe is delicious, and many of my non-keto friends and family members love it. It even tastes like twice baked potatoes, so you don’t have to tell anyone that it is low-carb. You can even use frozen cauliflower florets or bacon bits to make this recipe even easier!
