Fried Cheesy Cauliflower Patties

Fried Cauliflower patties

Fried Cauliflower with cheese Fried Cauliflower with chicken

Ingredients:

  • 1 C Mashed Cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 1 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Onion

Directions:

Cut the florets off of the stem of the cauliflower. Put in a pan and cover with water. Boil for about half an hour until they are soft. Drain and mash like mashed potatoes. Do not use a food processor use a potato masher. Let mixture cool off a little. Add the remaining ingredients.
Fry in butter or oil. I like coconut oil, it has no cholesterol and is VERY good for you. It has no flavor because it’s made from the shell of the coconut. Drop by spoonful into non-stick frying pan.
Fry until golden brown, actually the darker the better. I found a bit above medium is a good temp, you can get them brown without burning on a higher flame.
My head of cauliflower had 3 cups of mashed. So I put the remaining in the freezer for a future dinner.
