Buffalo Cauliflower Bites are one spicy (and secretly healthy) appetizer, perfect for game day!
Football season is officially underway, which means tailgating parties! However, most spreads at football parties are not very diet friendly! Bring a slimmed down appetizer to your next event to keep your diet on track! This is a super tasty, crowd pleasing appetizer that you can fill up on without the added guilt!
I’m a sucker for anything doused in spicy buffalo sauce, even baked cauliflower!
