Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

This may be one of the best Keto appetizers or keto side dish recipes I’ve seen yet!  These are called Buffalo Cauliflower Bites and they were shared with us by Rachel N in the Low Carb Inspirations Facebook Group! Cauliflower bites that pack a kick.

She explains how super simple these are to make!  Here’s the best part about making keto cauliflower recipes, it takes on the taste of almost anything you try to make out of it.  I’ve tried cauliflower recipes including cauliflower mash, cauliflower pizza crust, and cauliflower rice!  In fact, I add cauliflower to many of my keto casserole recipes like this Easy Keto Pizza Casserole recipe!
