Cauliflower Cheesy Bites

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars
Recipe By:Lori Rowley-Sipple
"Cauliflower rice is baked into bread slices and topped with white Cheddar cheese to make these gluten-free grilled cheesy bites."

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower, stemmed and cut into small florets
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 4 slices white Cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  2. Place cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse into crumbs about half the size of rice grains.
  3. Place cauliflower into a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until soft and tender, about 2 minutes. Remove and stir. Microwave for 3 minutes. Remove and stir again so that all the grains cook evenly. Microwave until almost dry, about 5 minutes. Stir and microwave until cauliflower looks dry and clumped up, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir Parmesan cheese, egg, and seasoning into the cauliflower until a smooth paste forms. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions; transfer to the baking sheet. Pat into square 'bread' slices, about 1/2-inch thick, using your knuckles and fingers.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until slices are golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes. Slide off the baking sheet carefully with a good spatula.
  6. Place 1 slice of Cheddar cheese over 4 cauliflower bread slices. Top carefully with the other 4.
  7. Place sandwiches into a toaster oven and broil until cheese is completely melted and bread is toasted, 5 to 10 minutes.
