We have a
ridiculous amount lot of cut up cauliflower in our freezer. Bags upon bags! My oh-so-wise self (yes, being sarcastic here) saw a great deal on 35 pounds of cauliflower for an insanely cheap price, so I got it. Yes, we like cauliflower, but that was way more than I was imagining in my head! So I’ve been slowly going through new recipes in which I can use it up, before it’s too old. One of my new favorites is this Cheesy Cauliflower Dip!
Remember some of my other cauliflower dishes, such as my Creamy Cauliflower Pasta? Yum! This is equally as tasty as that dish! Man, oh man, the cheesy-ness of this Cheesy Cauliflower Dip is seriously delish! Plus, it’s super easy to make…score!
