How to Make Buffalo Chicken Cauliflower Casserole:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Remove the core from your cauliflower head and cut the florets into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Blanch the cauliflower by placing it in boiling water for 3 minutes or steaming in the microwave until it is fork tender. Pat dry and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl stir together cream cheese, hot sauce, ranch dressing and eggs.
  5. Add the cauliflower, 4 ounces of cheddar cheese, chicken, and celery to the cream cheese mixture and toss until well coated.
  6. Pour into a 11×7 inch casserole dish and sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese.  
  7. Bake for 30 minutes until the cauliflower is cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly
  8. Optional: For those of you who love blue cheese with your buffalo chicken wings you can sprinkle the top of the casserole with blue cheese about 5 minutes before it finishes baking.

Why Do You Use Eggs in this Cauliflower Casserole?

The eggs act as a binder to help hold the casserole together, along with the cheese. You don’t taste any egg in the recipe it just helps the casserole hold it’s shape when you serve it.

When the baking dish comes out of the oven set it aside to let it cool for about 10 minutes. This lets the casserole set and will allow you cut and serve it more easily.

Every bite of this loaded cauliflower casserole is packed with flavor from that spicy buffalo sauce. The creamy, cheesy sauce has just enough ranch dressing in it to mellow out the hot sauce and all of it perfectly coats the chicken and cauliflower.

How to Reheat Cauliflower Casserole:

This easy low carb casserole is great for lunch or dinner. I like to make a big dish of it on the weekend and then individually package the leftovers to take to work for lunch during the week.

To reheat the casserole you can either cut individual servings and heat them in the microwave for approximately 2-3 minutes or you can place the whole casserole, covered with foil, back in a 350 degrees F oven and heat for 15-20 minutes or until warmed through.

Personally I prefer the microwave method because it is faster and there is less chance of the casserole being overcooked.
