Cheese and Bacon Low Carb Bread Rolls.

How much did you used to love cheese and bacon bread rolls? Like so much. We sure did! Smothered in margarine of course. Obviously we don’t eat these anymore and we definitely do not eat margarine (gross.) So it was time to come up with a healthy cheese and bacon low carb bread roll recipe.

Not gonna lie, we’re pretty impressed with our kitchen skills. This recipe is actually mega easy and freaking all kinds of delish. You should definitely give it a go!

The number one tip we have for you is to make sure you squeeze out the extra liquid of the cauliflower. This will make or break your cheese and bacon low carb bread rolls (like literally you will have broken mushy rolls). So once you’ve given the grated/whizzed cauliflower a squeeze, squeeze it out all over again. Yes, it’s messy, so embrace the mess.

On the topic of cauliflower, how good is cauliflower? If you’re looking for more fun recipes with cauliflower make sure you checkout this cauliflower pita bread recipe or this cauli fried rice or what about this cauliflower and leek soup? YUM! Hmm we actually might need to make some more cauli recipes! 

If you make these let us know how you go! We love it when we see your delish, Merrymaker recipes shared all over social media. Yum and fun!

Always merrymaking,

    Hey Jill! Oh the cauli is the main ingredient… however… you could do it with white potato… they’ll be more like fritters though 🙂

  16. Aww. Sorry girls. We tried, tasted and ….
    I thought they were ok.
    heheh I didn’t tell hubby how I made them. I said “here look babe I made you bacon and cheese rolls for work” he smiled at me, kissed me, took a bite and ran from the kitchen accusing me of trying to poison him hahaha lol
    They had this overpowering taste of cauliflower. A vege that neither one of us like. But I was determined to give them a go. I think that is important.
    Oh well.. now on to your next recipe… Paleo Pork Belly .. looks awesome!!
