Cheeseburger Cauliflower Helper (Low-Carb Comfort Food)

Raise your hand if you’ve had at least one box of “Hamburger Helper” in your lifetime. We all love those one pan meals! Now we can enjoy some nostalgia with a simple low-carb version and stay in ketosis. I’ve made this once a week for the past three weeks and we love it. The possibilities could be endless by switching up the ingredients. Note: this recipe is easier with one pot and one pan, however, no box of “Hamburger Helper” is required!

Cheeseburger Cauliflower Helper
1 to 1 1/2 lbs of hamburger
1 small or 1/2 medium onion, diced
1 minced clove of garlic, or garlic powder to taste
salt and pepper
1 large head of cauliflower
4 oz of cream cheese
1/4 cup of half and half
1 cup of cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 teaspoon of dried mustard
1/8 teaspoon of tumeric

1. Set a pot full of salted water (2 – 3 quarts) to boil. Chop cauliflower into small florets.

  2. Brown hamburger in pan.

3. While hamburger is browning boil the cauliflower for 8 – 10 minutes (until al dente).

4. When hamburger is almost done (most of the pink gone) push the hamburger off to the side of the pan and add diced onion to the hamburger fat.  Add garlic, salt, and pepper to the hamburger. When the onions are soft mix everything together. Keep on low until you add the cauliflower and cheese.

5. Drain cauliflower and set aside. In the same pot we cooked the cauliflower in melt cream cheese with half and half over medium heat.  Add the shredded cheddar cheese, dried mustard, and turmeric stirring continually.

6. Put it all together in the frying pan. Add the cauliflower to the hamburger and stir. Add the cheese sauce and stir. Turn up the heat briefly to bring to a serving temperature.

7. Dish up!
