Cauliflower and Butter on Foil

When it’s warm outside, I love hanging out outside with my family. And when we can grill outside too, it’s even better. When we’re grilling, I like to make the whole meal on the grill if I can. That way I’m not stuck inside by myself. Before switching my lifestyle to low carb eating, one of my most favorite grilled sides was baked potatoes. One night I was craving a loaded baked potato with dinner, so I came up with this loaded cauliflower instead.

Cauliflower Foil Packet on Grill

Cauliflower is a great substitute for potato in a lot of recipes, and this one is no exception. Loaded cauliflower has all the delicious loaded flavors. And you don’t miss the potatoes. You can even cook it on the grill.

Prep the Cauliflower and Grill

The prep for this delicious side is actually very easy. Simply cut a head of cauliflower into florets. Or, buy some already cut up. Put the cauliflower florets on a large piece of foil. Add a couple tablespoons of butter on top and season with seasoning salt to taste. Cover the cauliflower with a second large piece of foil and roll up all the edges to make a packet. Put the foil packet on the grill for 20-25 minutes until the cauliflower is fork tender. Not grilling weather? Simply bake the foil packet in the oven at 425°.

Add Bacon and Cheese

Cut open the top piece of foil on three sides. Check that the cauliflower is fully cooked with a fork. If not, cook for a few more minutes. Once the cauliflower is tender, top with shredded cheese and pre-cooked bacon crumbles. Fold the top piece of foil back over the cauliflower, loosely. Don’t let the foil touch so that the cheese doesn’t stick to it. Cook the cauliflower for another 3-5 minutes until the cheese is melted and the bacon is crispy. Remove the packet from the grill. Serve the loaded cauliflower with sour cream and your other favorite toppings. Enjoy.
