Cheesy Cauliflower Cakes
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup shredded cheddar or Colby jack cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons dried minced onions
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • Palm shortening or expeller pressed coconut oil for frying
  1. Cut cauliflower into florets.
  2. Boil for about 10 minutes or until tender.
  3. Drain.
  4. Mash with a potato masher. (I found that this created what looked like shredded potatoes.)
  5. Stir in eggs, shredded cheese, minced onions, and salt until well combined.
  6. Melt 1-2 Tablespoons of palm shortening or coconut oil in a skillet.
  7. Scoop 2 Tablespoons of mixture into the melted oil, pressing down into a cake.
  8. Fry over medium heat until brown and crispy - about 2 minutes on each side.
  9. Serve right away.
  10. Makes 12-15 cakes.
  11. (To save time, you can skip forming these into cakes and simply fry them up in a skillet in a big batch like you would do with hashbrowns. )
