Comments

These cauliflower tots are so easy to make. I often double the recipe and use a cookie scoop for easy portioning. This is a good way to use up a big head of cauliflower.

My husband and I enjoy cauliflower and eat it regularly at home but I hadn't yet found a recipe that my kids liked. I called these cheesy tots like tater tots and my kids (ages 4 and 7) ate them! We'll definitely make this again.

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.
