Cauliflower Crust Grilled Cheese 

Ingredients Cauliflower Grilled Cheese 5

Makes 3 grilled cheese sandwiches

Cauliflower crust “bread” slices

2 Head Cauliflower, cut into small florets

2 free-range Organic Egg, lightly beaten

1 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese or Parmesan

½ tsp fine grain sea salt

¼ tsp ground black pepper

Grilled cheese

1 tablespoon grass fed butter, room temperature

6 Slices REAL Cheese Cheddar Cheese – No imitation or processed!

1 Avocado, sliced

1/2 lb. of Bacon

DirectionsCauliflower Grilled Cheese 4

Cauliflower crust “bread” slices

1. Steam cauliflower over med-high heat for 20 minutes or until soft.

2. Preheat oven to 450°F (220°C) place a rack in the middle.

3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and liberally grease it with coconut oil. Set aside.

4. Place cauliflower in a mixing bowl & crumble with a fork, let cool

5. Place cauliflower in a tea towel, twist it to squeeze as much moisture as you can (I usually squeeze out over a cup of liquid). This is EXTREMELY important. The cauliflower needs to be dry, otherwise you’ll end up with mushy dough. {Make this step easier on yourself by getting some cheese cloths…. But if you don’t have them it’s okay. The Tea Towel will do the trick.}

6. Transfer the cauliflower back to mixing bowl add egg, mozzarella or parmesan, salt, pepper, mix well.

7. Spread cauliflower mixture onto the lined baking sheet, shape into 6 squares. Place in the oven bake about 16 minutes until golden.

8. Remove, let cool 10 minutes before peeling them off the parchment paper (careful not to break!)

The Sandwich Itself

Heat a pan over medium heat.

Butter one side of each slice of cauliflower crust bread (preferably the top).

Place one slice of bread in the pan, buttered side down, top with cheese, avocado, bacon and the remaining slice of cauliflower crust bread, buttered side up.

Cook until golden brown, about 2 to 4 minutes each side.
