Gluten Free, Low Carb, Keto Friendly, Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole





Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole


  • 1 - 2 lbs of cauliflower florets (frozen cauliflower can most times be cheaper than buying a head of cauliflower)
  • 1 lb of bacon (optional)
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese
  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup of mayo of your choice
  • 1 packet of hidden valley ranch seasoning or 1 ounce of your own mixture of ranch dressing seasoning.(Some alternatives - Moms's or Walden Farms)
  •  2 - 3 chicken breasts

Pre-Cook the chicken
Add the cauliflower florets into a 9x13 pan, drizzle with a little bit of olive oil or butter, and bake in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes if the cauliflower is thawed. If frozen, place in the oven for 30 minutes. While the cauliflower is cooking, this is a good time to cook the bacon in the oven as well.
While the cauliflower and bacon is cooking in a mixing bowl add the softened cream cheese, mayo, heavy whipping cream and ranch seasoning to the bowl and using an imersion blender or a hand blender mix well.
Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and place into another mixing bowl.
Add the bacon (if you want) and the cauliflower the bowl with the chicken.
Take the ranch dressing and add that to the bowl with the chicken mixture.
Mix well to coat.
Add to a 9x13 pan and cook in the oven at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Gluten Free, Keto Friendly, Low Carb, Chicken Bacon Ranch Jalepeno Popper Casserole


Here is a great casserole to make that only takes a few ingredients and is excellent for the Sunday football games or on a day when you feel like a bit of spice, but not a whole lot. This is also a great warm comfort food to enjoy when it starts to get colder out as well. 



Chicken Bacon Ranch Jalepeno Popper Casserole. 

- Jalepeno Peppers (cut in half and gutted out)
- 16 ounces of Cream Cheese (or more if you want for the jalepenos)
- 1 lb Bacon (pre-cook it )
- 3 - 4 Chicken breasts (or more if you want) and cut them into bit size pieces.
- Shredded Cheese
- 1 cup of real Mayo or more if you want (I used 1.5 cups for a double batch in the video)
- 1/2 heavy whipping cream
- 1 packet of hidden valley ranch dressing mix, or you can make your own.

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
Cook the chicken until done and cut into bit size chunks.
Prep the jalepeno poppers and then wrap them in tin foil and place them into the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or so until they become tender.
Mix 8 ounces of cream cheese, Mayo and the heavy whipping cream into a bowl and then add the ranch dressing and mix well until combined.
Add in 1/2 to 1 cup of shredded cheese to the ranch dressing mixture and mix well.
Cut up the bacon that you had cooked into small chunks.
Add the bacon into the chicken and add in the ranch dressing mixture and mix well until combined.
Add the chicken mixture to a large casserole pan (9x13 works if you do not double the recipe) and then take jalepeno poppers and cut them in half, then place them on the top and sprinkle with some more cheese about a 1/2 to a cup of cheese.
If you have any bacon left over you can add some to the top for some garnish, or you can eat it while the casserole is cooking.
Place in the oven for about 20 minutes or untiil the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Cook bacon without stinking up the house


Some may say "The smell of bacon cooking does not make the house stink, it enhances the aroma of the house!", while I do agree with that my wife does not. She does not like the smell of the bacon frying and the grease burning in the pan, so if you do not like the smell or want to cut down on the smoke from frying bacon here are a few other ways that you can cook bacon.

Cooking bacon in the oven

I will usually cook bacon in the oven especially if the recipe that I am making calls for cooked bacon. There are a few benefits to doing this. 

  1. You are free to work on other things while the bacon is cooking in the oven. It will take about 15-20 minutes for the bacon to cook. 
  2. You have free time to do other prep while the oven is pre-heating. 
  3. The oven is already hot, especailly if you need to use the oven when you are done cooking it. 
  4. The grease drains nicely from a cookie sheet to where you can easily pour it into a glass container to use for other purposes. 

Cooking bacon is not just limited to the oven or the frying pan. You can also cook bacon in your grill, to which I will do when it is really hot outside and I dont want the air conditioner to be working harder than it should be. It's already hot outside, so just cooking the bacon on a sheet of tinfoil works.

  • One way is to cook it in the microwave. I don't like to do this as it gets your microwave all greasy, but there are people who like to do it this way?
  • Cook it in the oven. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, take a cookie sheet or a rimmed baking sheet and line it with aluminum foil. Line the baking sheet with the bacon and cook for about 20 or so minutes until the bacon is as done as you want it. You can then save the bacon grease in your fridge for later use
  • Cook it on the grill, which this I will do most often. Take some aluminum foil and make a sort of rimmed baking sheet with it and place the bacon on this. If you make it with rims, the bacon grease will not drip into the fire causing flare ups. Cook on a medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until the bacon is cooked the way you like it. You can also save the grease from this
  • You can even cook bacon in a Power cooker (pressure cooker)


Below I have a video that I did of going over the process that I do for cooking bacon in the oven. I was making another dish at the time and needed some bacon cooked, so I thought what better time to do a short video than now. 

There are just a few ways that you can cook bacon without "stinking up the house". If you have any other ways that you like to cook bacon, comment below



Gluten Free, Keto Friendly, Cheesy bacon wrapped chicken

Bacon wrapped cream cheese stuffed chicken breasts which is low carb, gluten free and keto friendly. This is a fairly easy recipe to make and I have found out that if you cook it either in the oven or on the grill, if you wrap this in aluminum foil that the cheese filling will not all leak out.


  • 4 Boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup Shredded cheese.
  • 2 - 3 stalks green onion, chopped
  • 1-2 packages of bacon


  1. If you are going to cook this in the oven, preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Pound breast so it is about ¼" thick. I find covering them in saran wrap helps minimize stuff flying all over the place
  3. Mix together softened cream cheese, chopped green onions and shredded pepperjack cheese. Put ¼ of this mixture into the middle of each piece of chicken.
  4. Roll the chicken up, while trying to keep the cheese mixture in the middle
  5. Wrap 3-5 pieces of bacon around the chicken, trying to make the bacon fairly tight
  6. I find the wrapping it in aluminum foil helps this part since the cheese mixture will not leak out, but that is optional
  7. Place in a 9x13 pan and bake for 40 minutes at 375 degrees
  8. If you cook on the grill, cook as you normally would cook chicken breasts in a indirect way for about 20 minutes each side

how to make a bacon wrapped, keto friendly, gluten free meatloaf.


The calorie count and the fat count can differ based upon the meat and the amount of bacon that you use. The grease that is in the bottom of the loaf pancan be saved and used to different purposes. It can be used as cooking grease, it can be used to flavor biscuits, flavor sausage gravy or other purposes.

What is not to love about a meatloaf that is not only low carb, gluten free but also keto friendly?



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl with an handheld mixer, combine the first 12 ingredients. Mix on low until well combined. Take a regular size loaf pan or a bread loaf pan (same thing), and lay a few slices of bacon on the bottom of the pan to make a nice bottom. (I have found that lining the bottom of the pan with parchment paper makes taking the meatloaf out of the pan extremely easy!) Take the bacon and line the sides of the loaf pan so that you have a good wrapper for the meat loaf then using a metal spoon scoop the meat mixture from the bowl into the loaf pan.
Cook in the oven for 90 minutes, or until a meat thermometer shows 180-190.
Remove from the oven, let stand for about 5 minutes to let cool. You can also take this time to drain the bacon grease from the meatloaf pan and put it into a jar or something.
Bacon grease.

I have heard of some people leaving out 1/2 lb of meat and filling it with 8 or so ounces of cheese, such as cheddar cheese.
