Buffalo Bacon Cauliflower Bites


  • 1 head of cauliflower, broken into florets
  • Desired amount of buffalo sauce
  • Nonstick oil spray
  • Bacon slices, halved
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Jalapeños or other desired ingredients


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F.
  2. Toss cauliflower florets in your desired amount of buffalo sauce and set them aside.
  3. Turn a cupcake pan upside down and spray it with nonstick oil spray.
  4. Place half of a bacon strip on top of each cupcake mound, then wrap the other half around the cupcake mound.
  5. Place the cauliflower on one baking sheet and the upside-down cupcake pan containing the bacon cups on another sheet (ensure the baking sheet is larger than the cupcake pan to catch grease).
  6. Bake for 25 minutes, adjusting time for thin or thick bacon (20 minutes for thin sliced bacon). Thin bacon tends to get crunchier.
  7. While the bacon and cauliflower cook, mix cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese in a bowl. Add jalapeños or other desired ingredients.
  8. Once the bacon and cauliflower are done, let them cool.
  9. Spoon the cheese mixture into the bacon cups.
  10. Push desired amount of buffalo cauliflower into each bacon cup, on top of the cheese mixture.
