Cheesy cauliflower bake

November 17, 2019

This cheesy cauliflower bake is the perfect side dish for dinner and it would be great to take along for Thanksgiving for my American friends. I will admit I am not a big fan of cauliflower, I won’t eat it if it is just plain both raw or cooked but throw in some cheese and seasonings, bake it up and you have yourself a tasty dish that even I enjoyed! Makes 12 half-cup servings for 1SP on both blue & purple MyWW and 2SP on green.
