Cheesy Cauliflower Dip

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!
