I first had a similar casserole at my daughter’s house while visiting several weeks ago. I had never tried making anything with riced cauliflower so this entire dinner was a surprisingly tasty treat.

It’s super simple to make and just the type of dinner I like to put on the table when the weather turns cool. And, since there’s a big ole turkey still sitting in my refrigerator, this casserole is perfect for making it taste like a whole other animal.

Easy Cheesy Cauliflower Chicken Broccoli Casserole takes just minutes to prep.

The only cooking required prior to baking is following the directions on the frozen rice cauliflower and broccoli bags. As well as cooking some bacon and sauteing a little onion for about 5 minutes.

Just look at all that cheesy rich goodness and no rice in sight! I swear that if you don’t tell your family what it is made of they will never guess that it’s cauliflower. I always feel so much better as a mom when I can give my family something delicious and good for them.
