My hubby requests this almost every week!

When you’re balancing a busy career and a passion for cooking, finding quick and delicious low-carb options is a must. This Low Carb Mac & Cheese is a lifesaver for those hectic weeknights. Perfectly creamy and cheesy, it hits that comfort food spot without the guilt. It’s a dish that lets you indulge while sticking to your dietary goals. You’ll love how it comes together in no time, leaving you with more moments to enjoy with your loved ones.
This Low Carb Mac & Cheese pairs wonderfully with a crisp green salad, topped with a light vinaigrette to balance out the rich creaminess. Steamed or roasted veggies like broccoli or asparagus also make great sides, adding a nice crunch and extra nutrients to your meal. And if you’re feeling like indulging a bit more, consider serving it alongside some lean grilled chicken or fish.

1 medium head of cauliflower
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped parsley for garnish (optional)

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
Cut the cauliflower into small florets and steam or boil until tender, about 5-7 minutes. Drain well.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, heavy cream, and Dijon mustard.
Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Add the cooked cauliflower to the cheese mixture and stir until well coated.
Transfer the mixture to a baking dish and bake for 20 minutes, until bubbly and golden on top.
Remove from the oven, garnish with chopped parsley if desired, and serve warm.
Variations & Tips

To switch things up, you can use a mix of different cheeses like Gruyère or mozzarella. If you’re looking to add some protein, tossing in some cooked bacon or diced ham can elevate this dish. For an extra kick, consider adding a dash of hot sauce or a sprinkle of smoked paprika to the cheese mixture. And for those extra busy nights, you can prep the cauliflower and cheese sauce ahead of time, then just combine and bake when you’re ready to eat!
