Keto Cheesy Rice with Bacon

10 ratings

This cauliflower rice is packed with tender zucchini, aromatic scallions, oozy cheddar and crispy bacon.

This makes a great side to chicken or pork, or even on its own served with a side salad.

            I didn't use any olive oil and drained most of the bacon grease and it was still greasy enough but tasty!

              Great little dish! Added chicken for a dinner portion. A little too much grease left for me so I strained most of it out.
