Cauliflower and Cheese Tots

Bite-sized cauliflower cheese! Could this be the greatest invention ever? They may look like a pain to make, but they’re actually very easy.

50 Servings

2 tbsp cream
2 tbsp butter
450 g cauliflower (cooked)
2 large egg yolks
1 cup cheddar cheese (grated)
1 tsp baking powder
4 large egg whites


Preheat the oven to 180°C

Line two baking trays with silicone baking paper.

Melt together the cream and butter.

Place the cooked and drained cauliflower into the bowl of a food processor with the melted cream and butter, and blend until fine. Remove from the food processor and place in a mixing bowl. Allow to cool completely.

Once the cauliflower mixture is cold, stir in the egg yolks, grated cheese and baking powder

Whisk the egg whites until stiff.

Fold 1/4 of the egg whites into the cauliflower mixture, followed by the rest.

Using a round nozzle, fill a piping bag with the cauliflower mixture and pipe little tots onto the lined baking tray. Make them about 3cm long, and leave a little space between each one.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until they are golden.

Serve immediately with homemade tomato ketchup.

If you donít have a piping bag and nozzle, make the tots using two teaspoons; scoop with one, and use the back of the other to scrape out the tot.

Remember to eat them while they’re hot!
