  • 6 cups cauliflower florets
  • 4 ounces nitrate free bacon
  • 1. 25 pound ground beef
  • ½ cup chopped onion

Cheeseburger Sauce

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 1 cup milk 1%
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup dill pickle relish
  • 2 tablespoon organic no sugar added ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  • Place your cauliflower florets in a steamer and steam until just tender, you don't want them too soft.
  • Set aside.
  • Cook your bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Remove and set on a paper towel lined plate.
  • Drain the bacon grease from the skillet and cook the ground beef in the same skillet, once browned add the onion and cook until softened.
  • Add the florets and keep on low while making the cheddar cheese sauce.
  • To a medium sized sauce pan, add the butter on low heat to melt.
  • Whisk the arrowroot powder and milk together in a bowl.
  • Pour this into the sauce pan and bring to a simmer.
  • Reduce heat to low and stir constantly until mixture thickens and coats the back of a wooden spoon.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and stir until cheese is melted.
  • Serve this over the cauliflower burger mixture.
  • If you'd like this a little more browned on top, just place it under the broiler for a few minutes.
  • Top with bacon and enjoy immediately!
