With Easter in the bag, I found myself searching for a recipe for leftover ham. There are so many different things to choose from, but I wanted something that was a low carb ham recipe. I decided to use up some of our ham and make ham and cauliflower casserole instead of adding potatoes or another starch. If you’re following Trim Healthy Mama, this would be a delicious S meal. My kids were big fans of it, too! It’s quite simple to prepare!
First off, I used 2 bags of frozen cauliflower florets. You can throw in another bag if you desire! I placed them in a casserole dish, lightly drizzled with olive oil, and seasoned with salt in pepper. Into the oven it went at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes or until starting to brown and tender.
While that was baking, I mixed up sour cream, 1/3 less fat cream cheese, and cheddar cheese to add as a topping. I also cubed the ham into small, bite size pieces.
Once the cauliflower was ready, I took a fork and mashed some of the cauliflower pieces into smaller pieces and then stirred in the ham. Next I plopped the cheese mixture on top and spread out as evenly as possible. Last, added a little more cheddar on top and put in the oven at 350 to cook some more.
Serve with a salad or other favorite vegetable for a rounded meal! YUM!
Ham and Cauliflower Casserole Recipe:

This was so good, a new favorite for sure, my kids kept asking for more. Does anyone know the serving size and macros? I guesstimated it to be about 10 net carbs in 1 C. which unfortunately isn’t ketogenic enough for me to have this often.
Delicious!!! Thank you
Anyone know the nutritional values for this recipe?
I did a rough guess with with nutrition calculator. I used 1 Cup of diced leftover ham steak, cut into cubes; a small head of raw cauliflower cut up; full fat sour cream and full fat cream cheese. I got 6 servings from these ingredients. The ‘guestimate’ nutrition facts are as follows: (I don’t do net carbs, I do total carbs, full fat, moderate protein) This was DELICIOUS
