I was going to start this post by telling you guys how these Loaded Cauliflower Bites are all low-carb and gluten free and an alternative option to potato skins and on and on…but really, what you need to know first is how good these are! I mean really, if you smother anything in cheese and bacon, you’ve already got yourself a home run right? Exactly.
I crave carbs. I really really do. And I give in way too much. I’m constantly trying to think of recipes where I can satisfy that craving without having quite as much guilt. One of my favorite appetizers when we eat out is loaded potato skins. Since we are not eating out very much anymore, I like to create the things I miss at home. It did not take long at all for me to decide to create these Loaded Cauliflower Bites.
I’m a cauliflower addict (strange, but true), a cheese addict, and who doesn’t love bacon? I personally don’t care for the green onions on top, but I put them there because you might. I did have fun taking pretty pictures of the green onions next to our green knife though! Sorry for that. I couldn’t help but throw them into the post!
I am in no way saying this is a “healthy” appetizer. No way. It definitely is low carb (and gluten free), and I would say a better alternative to potatoes from that standpoint.
When I was pregnant and had Gestational Diabetes, the nurse who does ALL the nutritional counseling for pregnant women with Diabetes told me I could eat bacon every day. Um, it may be low carb, but I don’t think eating it everyday is ideal. However, I do believe that if you like it, you should eat it sometimes. And always in delicious ways, like this!
Enough of my rambling…on with some more mouth-watering, have-to-make-these tonight photos!
I would make two recommendations for when you make these. One,use foil or a Silpat mat on your baking sheet so you can clean off the baked on cheese easier and two, use a fork. They come close to loaded potato skins in a lot of ways, but not quite what I would call “finger food” unless you don’t mind getting messy! Other than that, just load em up and enjoy!
