We really, really loved this recipe!!  It was super fast, my 4 year old combined all the ingredients on her own and formed the tots, the cauliflower took less than a minute to grate and they also cooked fast.  Plus they tasted great to all!  Even better right out of the oven.  Only change, next time i will double the recipe.
