Roasted cauliflower is a staple in our house. And it's fantastic. But sometimes, you just need a change.  Enter Cauli-Poppers. These little bites of cheesy goodness will turn a cauliflower-hater into a lover and satisfy even the most fanatic cauliflower fan. 





3 cups shredded cauliflower (about half or a third of a head of cauliflower)

3/4 cups shredded cheese (I used sharp cheddar)

1/4 cup parmesan cheese

1 egg, beaten

1/4 cup corn meal

1 teaspoon mustard

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon salt, pepper to taste


Pre heat oven to 400. Grate the cauliflower using your "grater" on your food processor. The cauilflower must be dry. Once grated, add to a mixing bowl. Add the cheeses, beaten egg, corn meal, mustard, garlic powder and salt and pepper to the bowl and mix well. Place parchment paper on a baking tray. Using your hand, sqeeze a small amount of the mixture to make a ball. It should be smaller than a golf ball but bigger than a marble. Squeeze gently to form into a ball. Place on the parchment paper. Repeat until you are done with the mixture. Bake for 30-40 minutes. We like them crispier, so we kept them in on the longer side. You could definitely serve these with ketchup or tomato sauce. Or eat them straight up, like we did.
