Cauliflower Tots
Ingredients
  • Cooking spray

  • 1 head cauliflower, trimmed (about 1 ½ pounds)

  • 1 egg

  • 1 egg white

  • ½ cup reduced fat, shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs

  • 2 scallions, white and green parts, minced

  • ½ teaspoon salt (optional)

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat one large or two small baking sheets with cooking spray. Set aside.

  2. Steam the cauliflower for 10-12 minutes or until soft. Set aside to cool. Once cool, mince the cauliflower.

  3. Stir the remaining ingredients into the minced cauliflower, and let the mixture rest for 10 minutes.

  4. After resting, stir the mixture again. Scoop cauliflower with a tablespoon measure onto the sprayed baking sheet. Form the ball into the shape of a tater-tot. Repeat to make 35 tots.

  5. Spray the top of each tot with cooking spray. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn the tots and bake an additional 10 minutes or until golden brown.

These were pretty good - I made 9 1/4 cup each patties instead of the tater tots, so I had to cook them longer but I was happy with the results. Thanks for posting the recipe
