Cauliflower, Bacon Blue

h2Chef’s Notes:/h2
pPutting some of my favorite things together to make a totally new dish is so exciting. Sometimes it does not work. Other times, like here, the finished product is greater than the sum of its parts. /p
pThis is a great side dish for a bland protein as it adds a great “pop” to the plate./p
pIf you think you HATE blue cheese, try this with cheddar or better yet, Swiss cheese./p
