This recipe is another one from my big birthday dinner! It’s no surprise I love this cheesey dish, I have a love of dairy and cheese that doesn’t mix well with my lactose issues. But I eat it all anyway! I don’t really eat a ton of veggies but I love cauliflower and broccoli and add some cheese on top? Winner winner!
In fact my plate probably looks a bit “have a little veggie with your cheese”, but I’ve never been about a well balanced meal so I’m okay with it. In fact my FAVORITE thing to do? take the extra cheese and eat in on top of my homemade breaded chicken tenders (recipe coming). Mmmmmm Wish I had more RIGHT NOW!
