Grain- Free, Low Carb Grilled Cheese!

Get your veggies and a grilled cheese in one crispy package!
When you want serious comfort food, a good grilled cheese sandwich is hard to beat.
But for those of us avoiding wheat, it’s off the menu, or is it?


You’ve probably seen the recipes online for cauliflower breadsticks and pizza crust.
And, like me, wondered if they worked. I tried the pizza crust recipe and it failed terribly but when I saw a grilled cheese recipe, I thought it was worth another try. A bread made from cauliflower? What if it worked?


Well, it did work and beautifully. It tastes great and really satisfies the desire for a warm, cheesy, crispy sandwich. I used organic cauliflower, raw cheese from pasture-raised cows and pasture raised eggs.


This recipe is clean, Keto, low-carb and – vegetarian-friendly.


Grain-Free, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

One head of organic cauliflower or one package of frozen, riced, organic cauliflower
One large egg
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
White cheddar cheese

Yield 2 Sandwiches


Preheat oven to 450°F.

If using a head of cauliflower:
Remove the stems. Put the cauliflower florets into a food processor and pulse until you have tiny pieces about the size of a 1/2 grain of rice. Then, place the cauliflower into a steamer.

If using frozen, riced cauliflower:
Place it in a steamer.

Steam the cauliflower until it is very soft. Be sure to stir it from time to time so that it is steamed evenly.

Once the cauliflower is cooked, you’ll need to remove the water from it. To do this, put half the cauliflower into a nut milk bag or clean dish towel and squeeze or wring out the water until the cauliflower is just slightly moist. Place it in a bowl and do the same with the other half of the cauliflower. Note: The cauliflower will be very hot. You may want to use gloves.

To the bowl of cauliflower, add the egg, Parmesan, and seasoning. Stir to combine until a smooth dough is formed. Divide dough into four equal parts. Place each part onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Shape into square bread slices about 1/4 inch thick.

Bake the cauliflower bread for about 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes.

Using a flexible spatula, gently slide 2 of the cauliflower bread slices off of the parchment paper and onto to a rack (if you have one) or a cookie sheet.

Stack thin slices of cheese as high as you like on the bread.

Slide the other two bread slices off the parchment and place them on top of the cheese.

Place the sandwiches back into the oven and bake until the cheese melts.
Remove from the oven and serve.
