Loaded Cauliflower Casserole is unbelievably tasty and full of fantastic flavor! I love that is tastes like loaded potatoes, but without all the carbs! I was having dinner with my five-year-old daughter and she loved it too! She said that it was so delicious and asked me to make it again! I love cauliflower and when mixing it with some of my favorites, bacon, and cheese, it makes a wonderful combination! Loaded Cauliflower Casserole is a perfect side dish or lunch! I am excited that I have all the ingredients to make it again this week! We had a really busy weekend filled with a lot of baseball games and since I ate quite a few cheeseburgers and plates of french fries, I at least should get some veggies in this week. I will ignore the not-so-healthy bacon and cheese part since I will at least be getting a lot of protein, right?!?!
