These Keto Cheese and Bacon Cauliflower Buns are the bees knees!  Cauliflower lover or not, you are going to love these!

I was feeling the need to make a new kind of bun that was just a little more “comforting” than my original Cauliflower Buns so I took the basic recipe added a few changes, amped up the fat and the cheesiness and who can say no to the addition of crispy bacon!  These turned out so much better than I could ever have thought.  Be prepared to find a new love.

So, you don’t like cauliflower….

Well let me tell you a bit of a secret… I don’t really like it either.  It is kind of a bit funky in my opinion, but let me tell you this, these buns are TOTALLY “the biz!”  Not “cauliflowery” at all just cheesy, bacony goodness!

How do I eat Keto Cauliflower Buns?

You can eat these totally on their own, toasted with your favourite toppings, or wrapped around a big juicy burger.  As we are getting closer to winter and soup season (just quietly I ate soup tonight) these buns would be good toasted as dunking toast, or even better toast 2 together with a few slices of cheese between and then cut into soldiers.  Hell yes!  I think I have to try that!

    5 seconds/reverse/speed 5

  4. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, or in Thermomix® 15 seconds/reverse/speed 4

  5. Push mix into large egg rings (only fill half way up) on baking tray you dont want them too thick as they are very filling.

  6. Cook for 20 minutes flipping after 10 minutes cook until lightly golden and a little crispy

Recipe Notes

These buns are very delicious.  

I have used a very large egg ring to create these but you could easily make these with smaller ones.  

They are very filling so if using for a burger I would recommend using the smaller egg ring and making 12 serves, or halve the mix.

This recipe is great to make ahead and freeze in individuak portions for the lunchbox

  1. This is the easiest recipe EVER! I make a batch very chance I get. I use them as pizza bases, my morning toast when I crave it and better yet – I served it up to Hungry footballer boys who apparently hate cauliflower and they demolished an entire batch with their hamburgers! Obviously they are still unaware what is actually in these buns! Megan you are a genius!!!!

    1. Thanks Emma! Glad you and the troops enjoyed them x

  2. These buns are awesome. We’ve just had the best burgers for dinner. Thanks Megan

  3. These buns were so delicious my kids even loved them. They were so easy to make that my 9 year old daughter helped.

  4. I finally jumped in and made these today.
