Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Spray a mini muffin tin with oil or coking spray.
  2. Place the shredded cauliflower in a kitchen towel and squeeze out the excess moisture.
  3. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl, and mix together thoroughly. I like to use a fork.
  4. Using a spoon or scoop, divide the mixture between the muffin cups and press down firmly into the cups.
  5. Bake at 400°F for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
  6. Allow to cool slightly before running a knife around the edge to pop the tots out of the muffin tin.

Recipe Notes

You can use the shredding attachment for a food processor or a hand grater.
