Paleo Twice Baked Cauliflower Pie Recipe

I saw this recipe on Pinterest for Ground Beef and Twice-Baked Potato Pie. I thought it looked amazing, but of course it had several ingredients in it that I’m allergic to. So, here’s my version, which is equally, if not more, amazing ;)

Ingredients:

Cauliflower Puree

2 medium-sized heads of cauliflower, chopped

8-10 cloves of garlic (depending on taste), peeled

2 tablespoons ghee or butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

Meat Crust

2 lbs ground beef

2 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 6 tablespoons water, mixed and rested

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon onion powder

Topping

8 oz cheddar cheese – sliced or shredded

1 stalk of green onion, chopped

3 slices of cooked bacon, chopped

optional – 1 tomato, chopped

 

Making It:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Put the chopped cauliflower and garlic gloves on a baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil. Bake for about 30 minutes.
  3. While the cauliflower is baking, mix all of the meat crust ingredients in a large bowl.
  4. Dump the meat mixture into a large pie plate, and move the meat around to shape it like a crust (make sure you push down in the center and up around the sides). Bake for about 15 minutes, or until slightly underdone.
  5. Once the cauliflower and garlic are done baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a minute.
  6. Put all of the cauliflower puree ingredients together into a blender, and blend until smooth. You can do this in two batches.
  7. Once the meat crust has reached slightly underdone, remove it from the oven, but leave the oven on.
  8. Top the meat crust with the cauliflower puree, the cheese, the bacon, then the green onion.
  9. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. You can broil it too if you want to brown the top a little bit.
