1 hour

Cauliflower-Bacon Dip is the perfect game day recipe. The mouthwatering blend of roasted cauliflower, smooth cheese, salty bacon and creamy sour cream is absolutely addicting. Need we say more?


  • 1-pound cauliflower florets
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups freshly grated cheese + a sprinkle for topping
  • 4 slices of cooked bacon crumbled
  • ¼ cup fresh chives, chopped + garnish
  • Optional: 1 tbsp. red onion, chopped for garnish
Low-carb keto veggie suggestions for dippers:
  • Zucchini
  • Broccoli
  • Mini Bell Peppers
  • Carrot Chips
  • Asparagus
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery


  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. In a large bowl, toss cauliflower florets with olive oil, salt and pepper together and then pour evenly onto a large baking sheet. Roast until golden, turning halfway through, for about 25 minutes.
  3. Allow roasted cauliflower to cool to room temperature (Optional: Using a clean dish towel, squeeze any excess water out of the cauliflower. This will give you a thicker dip).
  4. Transfer cauliflower to your food processor and pulse together with the garlic, sour cream, 2 cups grated cheese, crumbled bacon and ¼ cup chopped chives.
  5. Transfer mixture to a baking dish and sprinkle with additional cheese. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, or until the cheese is starting to brown and the inside is warmed.
  6. Serve with your desired dipping companions and enjoy immediately.
  • We love mixing up the blends of cheese in this recipe. Like your appetizers with a bit of a kick? Use one cup of cheddar alongside one cup of pepper jack.
  • Add a few shakes of your favorite hot sauce for extra zing.
  • Serve with smashed avocado that’s topped with chives, salty bacon, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Swoon.
