Instructions

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef or pork
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups riced cauliflower

Instructions

  1. Begin by cooking your cauliflower rice. ( This is if you make your own. You can just buy frozen riced cauliflower and skip this step.)
  2. Preheat oven to 350F and grease 9 inch baking dish.
  3. Sauté the ground beef, onion, garlic until fully cooked in a skillet.
  4. In a bowl whisk together milk and cornstarch.
  5. Add cornstarch and milk mixture to ground beef. Stir continuously for 5-10 min or until thick.
  6. Add in Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and then transfer to baking dish.
  7. Top with 1 cup of the shredded cheddar, followed by the drained cauliflower, more salt and pepper, and finally the remaining cheese. 
  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the cauliflower starts to brown and the cheese on top is melted.

Notes

To make the recipe even easier you can definitely just sub the milk, cornstarch and seasonings for 2 cups of cream of mushroom or chicken soup! I just never have that on hand and like to live with less stuff that I can make myself!

I also did use parmesan cheese the last time and tasted just as good so whatever you have on hand will work!
