If your familiar with not just my recipes but me and my picky way of eating from perhaps following along on my Instagram then you’d know I don’t really do vegetables 😉 and I know I am not alone out there! Yes of course I know they are good for you, you’d have to be living under a rock to not know that, it’s common sense but… I am the type of person that does not wan’t to force myself to eat things simply because they are the healthy choice, I need to like it and enjoy it… well this loaded cauliflower bake is the answer.. it is how you get me to eat vegetables 🙂 I was in love with this recipe and I am pretty sure I could of inhaled the whole dish… at 4 freestyle smart points per serving it would not have been that much damage lol.. It makes a great side dish and I can’t recommend it enough!
Loaded cauliflower bake
- 1 head of cauliflower (washed and cut (I only used fresh cauliflower, I think frozen will work but might have added water))
- 6 slices of low point bacon (I use center cut bacon cooked and crumbled)
- 1/2 cup fat free sour cream
- 1/2 cup low fat plain yogurt (I used the Skyr yogurt, greek is good too)
- 1 28 g package ranch dip seasoning
- Dash of salt & pepper
- 1 cup reduced fat shredded cheese (I used a 3 cheese blend)
- Green onion (diced)
- Boil your cauliflower florets for about 15 minutes, drain and set aside.
- Preheat oven to 375F, spray a 9x13 casserole dish with some non stick spray.
- In a large bowl mix your sour cream, yogurt, ranch seasoning, salt & pepper, 1/2 of your crumbled bacon and 1/2 cup of your cheese (leave other 1/2 cup aside and half bacon for topping)
- Add in your cauliflower and mix well.
- Place cauliflower mixture in your casserole dish, top with your remaining cheese, bacon and diced green onion. Cover with foil and bake in oven for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 7 minutes.
- Makes 6 servings, each weighing approx 7.5oz , 4 PP or 4 freestyle smart points per serving on all 3 MyWW programs (3 points plus, old WW program) Recipe should freeze well
- Nutritional info per serving.. Calories 113..Fat 5.6g...Sat fat 3.4g..Carbs 6.2g..Fiber 0g...Sugars 4g..Protein 10.7g..
- *Note, you could also use bacon crumble (in the package) if you can't find low point bacon, it is fairly low in points..
Do you have a particular brand of bacon you’d recommend for low points? Thanks!
I use center cut but buy it in the U.S, if your in Canada you can always try bacon crumble it is pretty low points
Ok thank you! 🙂
The nutrition lists no fiber…but there is fiber in cauliflower.
The nutritional info does not incl the cauliflower since we do not count for vegetables on WW, I have since started adding them in when I do the nutrition info and letting people know they may get a different point value because of this..
This would probably be better with 1/2 the ranch seasoning. It was way too Ranch-y for us. Oh well will try again and cut the ranch in 1/2!
Everyone has different tastebuds, hope you like it more with cutting it down 🙂
I bought vanilla yogurt instead of plain, lol, do you think it would be fine to just use a cup of the ff sour cream instead?
Yes I think that will still work fine 🙂
Made it tonight. Delicious!!!
So glad you enjoyed it 🙂
We LOVE this recipe. Shared with friends and their family now LOVES it too. Delicious!
Yay, so happy to hear that Erin 🙂
Do you think it would work to prepare the night before, refrigerate overnight and bake next day?
I have not personally tried it but I would think it will be ok
When I made this, it was delicious but I found the bottom of my casserole dish watery… How can I avoid this?
Yeah cauliflower has a lot of water in it, did you use frozen by chance cause that will definitely make it more watery

I have really been wanting to try your recipes. Its hard to find the serving sizes. I have noticed its not with the nutritional info on most of the recipes.
Hi Mindy, at the very top of the recipe, under the title and the prep time and cooking time you’ll see servings.. and then usually at the end of the instructions I will say the servings/size ..hope that helps 🙂
