I got this recipe and it wasn't low carb and included breadcrumbs instead of Parmesan cheese so you could form patties (like a latke). Since I'm living a low-carb lifestyle, I decided to adapt it, but the patties were less-than-desirable visually the taste wasn't that impressive. I had one completely fall apart on me in the pan so I just scrambled it up and viola; we had a new fave! You can add bacon and garlic as a yummy addition, if desired.

  • Mash cauliflower in a bowl until smooth. Beat Cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, eggs, cayenne pepper, and salt into cauliflower.

  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Pour cauliflower mixture into hot butter and cook until golden, about 5 minutes. Flip cauliflower mixture; cook and stir until mixture is more crumbly than creamy, about 10 minutes more.

A perfect breakfast dish for those watching their carbs. This would also be great with the addition of diced onion and green pepper. I added crumbled bacon on top. Read More

If eating for a 'breakfast' egg scramble then it's what I would expect. I added onions, garlic and raisins for a little more flavour. Could experiment a little more and will do when I make it again. Read More

Great recipe! If using Parmesan go easy on the salt or skip it all together. Also allow longer cooking time I the skillet to get it to have a hash brown type texture. Great side dish! Read More

Ever since I started a low carb way of eating ( never diet!) I have been on the hunt on Allrecipes as well as elsewhere to find delicious low carb dishes and this one fits the bill! To this dish I added a sprinkling of sharp chedder cheese green onion and cubed (no sugar added) breakfast ham. Even my califlower despiser hubby liked it! Read More

I made this last night and followed the recipe to a t. It was terrific! I served with a nice grilled rib eye another All recipe suggestion for zucchini pasta a watermelon/blueberry salad with balsamic vinegar and a delicious Greg Norman 2016 Paso Robles cabernet. It was a very nice meal enjoyed by all involved. Read More
