I'm always in the mood to taste something new. (Restless Foodie Syndrome) So I hit the pages of Pinterest last week and found a few dishes that really caught my eye.
This week I will be featuring 3 dishes I have never tried before. One is savory (of course), one is sweet, and one is Fauxbulously simple, but has a pretty big "Ooh La La" factor. (Saving that one for Friday.) You'll want to stick around for it. So good...my family has already asked when I'll be making it again.
Anyway...on to today's feature - The minute I read this recipe I knew I had to try it! I did have a few questions though, so I read all the comments under it. So glad I did! I was able to make a few changes, follow a couple of tips, and bring to you a "spot on" dish! This is an awesome alternative to serving the standard baked potato with your steak. (That's exactly what I did.) And it was followed by HUGE raves from my family! What a great find! Enjoy!
1 head of cauliflower
2 large eggs
1 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese
2 Tbs finely chopped green onion, plus extra for serving
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
1 tsp salt
small amount of olive oil
small amount of sour cream
Wash your cauliflower, chop into florets, and steam, in a medium size sauce pan for about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from pan and drain any water. In a large bowl, mash cauliflower while still warm. Mix in eggs, cheese, green onion, breadcrumbs, cayenne pepper, and salt. Sit in fridge for about half an hour to allow to cool and set up.
Coat the bottom of a griddle or non-stick skillet with olive oil over med/high heat. Form the cauliflower mixture into patties about 3 inches across. Cook for about 3 minutes per side, or until nice and browned. Keep each batch warm in the oven while you finish cooking the other. Garnish with additional chopped green onion and a side of sour cream. Makes about 8 pancakes.
