Cauliflower in a creamy cheese sauce is a perfect keto recipe and delicious to boot! Make sure you season well with salt and pepper (nutmeg tastes great as well) otherwise it will taste too bland. Ketogenic

Cook's Note: 

Feel free to use other types of cheeses. I often use up whatever I have sitting around in the fridge.
