  • 1/2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 24 ounces frozen cauliflower rice
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/3 cup green onion, sliced
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs or gluten-free if needed


  • Cook cauliflower rice with oil until defrosted and tender in a large oven-safe skillet (like a cast iron) on medium-high heat. Meanwhile, mix cream cheese, sour cream, milk, garlic, salt, and pepper into a sauce.  
  • Add cream sauce and 3/4 cup cheddar cheese to cauliflower rice. Keep stirring until everything is a creamy smooth consistency. Turn oven onto broil.
  • Stir in green onions. Turn off the heat and top with the remaining 1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese and breadcrumbs. 
  • Broil for 3-4 minutes, or until cheese is melted and the top is golden brown.
