I was a little nervous about my family liking this dish because they don’t follow the keto diet like I do and it didn’t have noodles but it turns out they LOVED it! And went back for seconds! That was a mom win for me. Give this recipe a try and let me know what your family thought of it!

Using the same skillet where you browned the meat, melt butter, heavy whipping cream and cream cheese on medium heat and mix together. When it starts to boil add in the cauliflower and mix together. Allow to boil and then add in shredded cheese and mix together until melted.

Once everything is mixed together add the browned meat in the skillet and mix together. Place in an oven safe dish and bake uncovered for 30 minutes.
