Cheesy, crispy, so amazingly good that they'll easily replace those other tots as your family's favorite side dish.

Calories 198 kcal
- 3 cups shredded cauliflower (about half of a head. See Note.)
- 4 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese (about 1 cup)
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup cornmeal or bread crumbs or ground oats also work
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- a few grinds black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
Preheat your oven to 400°F. Spray a mini muffin tin with oil or coking spray.
Place the shredded cauliflower in a kitchen towel and squeeze out the excess moisture.
Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl, and mix together thoroughly. I like to use a fork.
Using a spoon or scoop, divide the mixture between the muffin cups and press down firmly into the cups.
Bake at 400°F for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
Allow to cool slightly before running a knife around the edge to pop the tots out of the muffin tin.
You can use the shredding attachment for a food processor or a hand grater.
