Cauliflower and Ground Beef Hash – Low Carb Recipe

This cauliflower and ground beef hash is an easy low carb dinner that you can fit in any night of the week. And, boy, does it fill you up!

Cauliflower Ground Beef Hash - an easy, cheesy low carb dish!

When my husband is low carbing, easy go-to meals are a must for those days when you’re just too busy to fuss over dinner. This is one of those meals. It’s a no-fuss dish made with ground beef, cauliflower and lots of ooey gooey cheddar cheese. But the good thing is that you can dress it up or down depending on what you have in your pantry and fridge.

Toss in some jalapenos to spice it up. Add bacon, sour cream and green onions, and it’s a lot like a loaded baked potato (without all those bad carbs).

You noted to add bacon, sour cream and green onions to make it taste like a loaded baked potato. Do you add these items to the beef mixture or just on top when serving.

I just add them on top when serving.

Recipe is okay. Will be adding salsa next time as it was kind of dry

I've never had a problem with this dish being dry, but that can happen if you use very lean ground beef and/or cook the meat too long. Sorry it didn't work out for you, but the salsa sounds like a tasty addition!

This is the rare dish that everyone can eat and likes. How well does this freeze?

I've never tried freezing it; I think that would change the texture of the cauliflower too much. However, if you try it, please report back and let me know your results.
