Yesterday (April 12) was National Grilled Cheese Day, so of course I cooked up my favorite low carb, bacon-wrapped grilled cheese. This new version is SO MUCH easier, because instead of cauliflower florets for the “bread”, I used Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower .
For the low carb grilled cheese (above), I started with the basic cauliflower pizza crust recipe, then formed bread squares instead of round pizza shapes. If you don’t live near a Trader Joe’s or can’t find riced cauliflower at your market, just follow the original recipe (using a head of cauliflower) here.
Depending on the size of your bread slices, lay down strips of bacon (I used three thick pieces), then wrap the grilled cheese with bacon. Turn and wrap again and make sure the ends are on one side only. Next, use large tongs and a spatula to start frying (all sides) with the seam (bacon ends) side DOWN. This will help seal the bacon and hold the sandwich together. Take your time – it’s worth it!
My grilled cheese necklace I bought a few years ago on Etsy. I always wear it on National Grilled Cheese Day!
