Cauliflower Cheesy “Potatoes”

Sometimes, you just want something cheesy and ooey gooey as a side to your steak, chicken or even salad! Nothing beats the deliciousness of cheesy potatoes to cure that need.

Thankfully, God made cauliflower; a delightful little veggie that is a perfect substitute for a lot of things potato!

This recipe will satisfy your need for cheese and potatoes, without actually using the starchy nonsense you’ve hopefully left in your previous life! Grab a head of cauliflower and get in your kitchen to make some of this for your next meal. Better yet, make it at your next family gathering so your non-keto brood can get a great side that will remind them how awesome the keto way of eating can taste!
