BAKED CAULI-TOTS

Skip the spuds and ditch the deep fryer in favor of cheesy cauliflower tots made with just five ingredients.

INGREDIENTS
  • 3 cups (about half of a head) shredded cauliflower (see Note)
  • 4 oz. (about 1 cup) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup cornmeal (bread crumbs or ground oats also work)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • a few grinds black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground mustard
INSTRcUCTIONS
  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Spray a mini muffin tin with oil or coking spray.
  2. Place the shredded cauliflower in a kitchen towel and squeeze out the excess moisture.
  3. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl, and mix together thoroughly. I like to use a fork.
  4. Using a spoon or scoop, divide the mixture between the muffin cups and press down firmly into the cups.
  5. Bake at 400°F for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
  6. Allow to cool slightly before running a knife around the edge to pop the tots out of the muffin tin.
