Step 1

Cut cauliflower into florets and cook in boiling water until tender, about 8-10 minutes. Drain, then process the cauliflower in the food processor until it become the texture of rice. This can also be done using a knife.

Combine the minced cauliflower, cheeses, eggs, butter, flour, onions and breadcrumbs, and seasoning.

Heat skillet to medium/high heat. Coat with oil (about ½ inch) Form cauliflower mixture into patties about 3 inches across.

Cook until golden brown & set, about 3-4 minutes per side. Enjoy with sour cream or your favorite dipping sauce!
