Breakfast Cauliflower Rice with Bacon & Mushrooms – This Bacon Mushroom Cauliflower rice is such a delicious way to start the day. Just add an egg and it’s one amazing low-carb breakfast! (Gluten Free, Paleo, Whole30) 


  • 46 slices bacon, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups mushrooms, sliced (about 6 oz.)
  • 1/2 cup diced onion (about 1/2 a small onion)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 (10-12oz.) bag of cauliflower rice (I like frozen)
  • 1/3 cup veggie or chicken broth
  • 23 cups loosely packed spinach, roughly chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Start by crisping the bacon. Add bacon pieces to a medium saute pan and cook over medium heat until browned and crisped to your preference, about 8-10 minutes. Remove crisped bacon and set aside.
  2. Drain all but 2 Tbsp. bacon fat from the pan (leaving 2 Tbsp. bacon fat in the pan). Alternatively, you can discard all of it and add 2 Tbsp. olive oil to the pan instead.
  3. Add mushrooms and onion to the pan and cook in the bacon fat 4-5 minutes over medium heat, until mushrooms are turning golden and onion has softened.
  4. Add cauliflower rice and broth and stir, cooking 3-4 minutes, or until cauliflower rice has softened.
  5. Add garlic, spinach, salt and pepper and stir an additional 2-3 minutes, or until spinach has wilted.
  6. Return crisped bacon to the pan and stir to combine. Serve as a side dish, or top with eggs or sausages.
