  • Sift flour into a bowl. Whisk milk, egg, Parmesan cheese, and a pinch of salt into the flour until smooth. Add milk mixture to cauliflower mixture and stir until batter is evenly combined.

  • Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until golden brown on one side, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter.

These were quite good. Full disclosure, I didn't stick to the recipe exactly as far as the cooking method, but I did stick to the ingredients list other than subbing garlic salt for regular salt. Rather than adding milk (I left it out) and pan-frying, I upped the parmesan to 1/4 C and ran all of the ingredients through the food processor. I spooned the mixture onto a greased baking sheet and flattened into nugget-like shapes. I baked for 15 minutes at 350 and then flipped the nuggets and baked for an additional 15 minutes before serving with a dipping sauce made of sour cream (the bacon and green onion flavors reminded me of a baked potato!), sriracha, black pepper, and a tiny bit of lemon juice. Delicious! Read More

I tried this recipe. Only thing I did different was to add some grated zucchini and left out the bacon. I squeezed out the moisture from the zucchini before adding. I was not impressed with flavor of this fritter. I had even added more Parmesan cheese. It turned out to be more of a pancake with veggies in it than a fritter. Read More

These are great! I added garlic powder and more Parmesan cheese. I dipped them in a lot of condiments but found they taste good with Ranch dressing mixed with a little bit of soy sauce! Delicious! Read More

Wonderful should have made a double batch. At first I thought this is going to be a mess. After frying one and having a bite away I went. My wife even had a warm up for breakfast not as good as fresh but good. I would not change anything just great the way they are. Thank You Momof2 W&M Nakusp B.C. Read More

Great but I baked at 375 for 20 minutes then flipped for another 20 minutes. Served with a yogurt lemon juice and dill sauce. Nothing could be easier. Read More

Very yummy!! Because I didn't have any milk I used water instead and they still turned out fine. They're potato pancakes with cauliflower instead so good. Read More

We really liked this. We added onion and it was very yummy. The recipe made way more than we could eat so having it with eggs this morning I am going to try another reviewers suggestion and baking them next time to see the difference. Read More
