This is definitely one of my new favorite side dishes! These delicious little bits of what you would think is a tater tot but its really cauliflower will blow your mind completely. These are really easy to make even on a weeknight when you are rushed for time.I had extra tomato sauce from the weekend so I dipped my tots in it and it went perfectly. They are also perfectly delicious by themselves as well. Really though–you won’t believe how good these are until you try them!
Yield: About 2 dozen (24)
1 head of cauliflower
2 cloves garlic
1/4 yellow onion
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp black pepper
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1 cup marinara sauce for dipping (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wash one head of cauliflower and chop until it crumbles. Place in microwavable safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes, until soft.
2. In a large food processor, blend together, cauliflower, garlic, onions, salt, garlic powder, and pepper until its is well combined together. Add cauliflower mixture to a large bowl and mix in cheeses, egg, flour, and breadcrumbs until combined.
3. Spread cupcake tins with cooking spray and spoon in cauliflower mixture evenly (about 1/2 inch thick) sprinkle with more parmesan and bake for 15-20 minutes until crispy looking. Let cool for 10 minutes and enjoy!
*If you want to make smaller tots, use mini cupcake tins.
