I found out that when the right spices and cheese join the game and roasting comes to seal the deal, a finger lickin’ good dish gets created.

I made this recipe a few days ago and could not sleep well until I made it again. That pretty much sums up how tasty this thing is…

Here are all the necessary details…

3. Wash the florets under running water and place them on a larger baking pan.
