THIS IS NOT MY RECIPE NOR MY IDEA. I COPIED THIS POST BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT SOUNDED REALLY GOOD AND IS SOMEWHAT HEALTHY. IF YOU OWN THIS RECIPE AND DON’T WANT IT ON MY BLOG PLEASE TELL ME AND IT’S OUTTA HERE.
These were such a simple side dish & a great use for cauliflower (it seems we always end up roasting it). The cheese added a really nice depth of flavor & the cayenne just gave that bit of heat at the back of the throat.
cheese grated over the top.Cheesy Cauliflower Pancakes
1 head cauliflower
2 large eggs
1/2 c cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 c panko
1/2 t cayenne pepper (more of less to taste)
Cut cauliflower into florets & cook in boiling water until tender about 10 minutes. Drain. Mash the cauliflower while still warm. Stir cheese, eggs, panko, cayenne & salt to taste.
Coat the bottom of a griddle or skillet with olive oil over medium-high heat. Form the cauliflower mixture into patties about 3 inches across. Cook until golden brown & set, about 3 minutes per side. Keep each batch warm in the oven while you cook the rest.
