  4. Layer two slices of bacon on top of each egg in the ramekin. Set aside.
  5. Process cauliflower in food processor until rice like texture forms. Can also use a ricer or grater.

  7. Place a portion of cauliflower crust mixture on top of bacon layer. Use the back of a spoon to spread and cover the top of the bacon.
