Slow Cooker Pepper Jack Cauliflower


(Adapted from Carolyn Ketchum’s recipe on


Serves 6


I have included the bacon as an optional ingredient. It truly does take it over-the-top and is delicious, but we like it without the bacon, too.


1 head of cauliflower, cut into 1-inch florets

4 ounces cream cheese

¼ cup whipping cream

2 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

4 ounces Pepper Jack cheese, shredded

6 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled (optional, but really good)


1.      Grease the inside of a 4 to 6 quart slow cooker.

2.      Put the cauliflower, cream cheese, whipping cream, and butter in the slow cooker. (No need to stir them together.)

3.      Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

4.      Cook on low for 3 hours.

5.      Stir in the cheese and continue to cook on Low for another 30 minutes to an hour.

6.      Stir in the bacon, if using, and serve.
