1 lb cauliflower florets
1 TBS fat of choice (bacon fat, melted ghee, or olive oil)
4 cups chicken broth
2 TBS dehydrated onions
8oz cream cheese
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
salt & pepper, to taste
Sharp cheddar cheese, grated
green onions, chopped
** For the "fat of choice" I just used bacon fat since I was in the middle of making bacon for the toppings. Just scooped a TBS of grease out while I was cooking it. Adds lots of flavor
~ Over medium-high heat cook cauliflower in chicken broth until soft (slightly over cooked)
~ Lower temp. Add dehydrated onions, fat of choice, cayenne pepper, and cream cheese. Break down the cream cheese with wooded spoon until melted.
