You'll forget you are eating low-carb with this ham and 'rice' casserole

Print this recipe
Casseroles are the ultimate comfort food. They’re easy to toss together, bake slowly in a hot oven and are almost always creamy or cheesy — or both. And, of course, they’re delicious. With the recipe below, you can have all of that casserole goodness and still maintain your low-carb eating plan.
We use riced cauliflower in place of regular rice to keep the carb count down. Diced ham, eggs and lots of cheddar cheese make it totally satisfying. And because the "rice" is actually cauliflower, it’s also packed with vegetables, making it the ideal one-dish meal.
