Gluten-Free Cauliflower Ranch Potatoes

Christmas is just days away and everyone is looking forward to that delicious Turkey dinner! Gathering around the table with loved ones is one of my favourite parts about the holidays! There is something special about looking down the table and seeing family faces from infancy (we have a new baby in the family) to Grandparents (don’t worry mom, I won’t tell them your age!). Year after year, our family grows!

While the turkey kind of steals the show, there is no reason for the side dishes to fade away, and that is one thing that won’t ever happen with this amazing potato dish! It’s creamy, with a cheesey ranch tang and the kids will never ever know you snuck cauliflower in there! (neither will Grandpa, our little secret!)

  7. Hidden Valley went Gluten free!! YEAH! Having celiac disease I’m always looking for new ways to create delicious meals! Normally creamy dressings have wheat for thickening agents! This is great news!! I love the recipe too! What a great way to sneak veggies in a dish I know the kids will love!
