          I grated the onion so it was smooth. Amazing dish and easy to make.

          I use dried onions - much less carbs! Still get the flavor

            Great idea as I do not really need the fresh onion flavor. Assuming you probably did a Tablespoon of dried??

            Dried onion? Do you mean onion flakes?

            Can you steam the cauliflower instead?

              Whilst this dish is delicious, it does contain carb bombs. However, eating them once in a blue moon will be just fine for me, this is a way of life not some kind of fad. I’ll be making it again that’s for sure.

                I haven’t tried this yet, but am curious why the carbs are so much higher? I didn’t see anything that I thought had higher carbs. It looks delicious!

                  Onions are carb bombs. I'm going to make this without the onions

                Absolutely delicious! Top it over ground meat for a complete meal. I also sauteed till crisp two slices of bacon cut into small pieces and mixed in with the 1/3 of cheddar topping. My husband loved it! Had to make sure we didnt over eat it.
