Five days off from work this week and I’m in cooking heaven!

I usually keep a running list of recipes that I want to make and I think I’m finally going to get most of them done during this time.

So, today I am featuring this healthy cauliflower pancake and I can’t forget to mention the bacon!  This recipe is super easy to make and is really good when its topped with sour cream.  I ate two for lunch and they were delicious.  You can eat them by themselves or pair them as a side.

Enjoy!
