The weather is cooling down, and it is the season for comfort food. This ketogenic take on the loaded baked potato soup will surely hit the spot. You could call it a keto loaded cauliflower soup or a keto cauliflower chowder, but mostly I just call it delicious. You can't go wrong with bacon, cheese, green onions, and cauliflower. Give this a try, and thank me later.
