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.
1/2 hour prep to cook the raw cauliflower
15 min to fry them
Serves 4 – makes about 8 pancakes

This is the perfect winter meal. Having the oven on warms the house and the meal warms the insides. My mother made this for years, of course I have changed it up a bit.

  • 2 C Dry Elbow Macaroni
  • 1 Lb Ground Chuck Hamburger
  • 1 Medium Onion chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 Large (29 oz) Can Tomato Sauce
  • 4-8 oz Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Cook elbow macaroni according to directions. While it is cooking take a large frying pan. Brown the hamburger, drain. Add onion and saute. Add salt and pepper and tomato sauce. Stir in elbow macaroni. Pour into oven safe bowl or 11×9 dish.

Hint – when I use a bowl I pour in 1/2 the mixture topped with half the cheese and repeat. In the 11×9 pour in all the mixture and top with all the cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
