Grilled Cheese Sandwich on Crispy Cauliflower Bread

We didn’t need to get our nutrition degrees to tell you how much most people love ooey, gooey cheese.  And we certainly aren’t the exception when it comes to loving all foods that are rich, creamy, ooey and gooey! 🙂

 Cauliflower Grilled Cheese

So in honor of our love of delicious food and our mission to help people to enjoy great food while still keeping their waistline intact, we’ve created a scrumptious Cauliflower Grilled Cheese Sandwich!  We’re quite the fans of making cauliflower into whatever we want–it’s so low-calorie an so versatile. We’ve had a blast making things like our Creamy Cauliflower Mac ‘n Cheese  and if you’re looking for more guilt-free decadence using cauliflower, try our Skinny Cauliflower Gratin or our Skinny Cauliflower Mash  or our Skinny Mac ‘n Cheese (just to name a couple!)!
