Cauliflower Fritters
  • 1 Large head Cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets (about 5 to 6 Cups)
  • 3 Large eggs
  • 1 Cup Italian Style Bread Crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp. Whipped cream cheese
  • 1 Cup Shredded cheese (any variety)
  • 1 Tbsp. Onion powder
  • ½ Tbsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. Paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. Chopped herbs (used chives)
  • 1 Tbsp. Chopped green onion
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. bacon bits (optional)
  • Creamy Tzatziki sauce:
  • 1 container Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. Whipped Chives cream cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. Fresh Dill
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced
  • 1 medium Cucumber, diced
  1. You can steam, boil or microwave the cauliflower florets until soft and easy to mash. Drain the liquid and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Add the ingredients listed above and mix well.
  3. Heat enough oil to cover the bottom of a frying pan over medium heat.
  4. Take a large spoonful of the mix and shape into patties with your hands or simply drop a spoonful of cauliflower mixture onto the skillet and flatten with a spatula.
  5. Cook until golden brown, about 2½ to 3 minutes on each side.
  6. Transfer to a plate and continue with the next batch.
  7. Tip: It's easier to work with smaller size patties, they cook faster and easier to flip without them falling apart.
  8. Serve as is, with sour cream or with an easy Creamy Tzatziki sauce (see Ingredients above).
  9. Enjoy!
