  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag frozen cauliflower gnocchi
  • 2 cups riced cauliflower
  • 3 pieces crumbled cooked bacon
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 2 pasteurized eggs
  • ½ cup grated Romano cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add gnocchi and cook until browned, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add riced cauliflower, bacon and water. Cover and simmer until the gnocchi are tender and the riced cauliflower is soft, about 5 minutes.
  3. Beat eggs with cheese and pepper in a small bowl. Remove pan from heat. Add the egg mixture to the gnocchi, stirring to coat evenly.
  • Tip: When a recipe calls for raw eggs, you can minimize the risk of foodborne illness by using pasteurized-in-the-shell eggs. Look for them in the refrigerator case near other whole eggs.

Trader Joe’s sells them. $3/bag. 140 calls per 1C serving I think. Be sure to use a cooking method that crisps them (air-fryer, roasting, pan sautéed)
