This appetizer recipe is something my mom would make us kids with some healthy modifications.
The original recipe called for mashed potatoes, regular hot dogs and regular cheese. To make it healthier with less fat, carbohydrates and calories, we use mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes.
We have also modified it to use low fat cheese, skim milk and fat free sour cream. Even if you are not a big fan of cauliflower, the mashed version is not so bad.
Hot dogs are a favorite for many people and these cheesy mashed cauliflower dogs make a great appetizer, snack or even the main course.
These are best eaten when still warm but taste just fine cold as well. So make up a few for your next party or dinner. This is one of my favorite appetizer recipes to make.
