When I saw a picture of these fritters and found out they were made with cauliflower and cheese I was immediately sold on this dish. I didn’t like the idea of deep frying the fritters in oil, so I lightly sauteed them and then put them in the oven to finish cooking them.
Cauliflower Cheese Fritters (adapted from Colie’s Kitchen)
3/4 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1/2 c. milk
2 c. chopped, raw cauliflower
1 c. cheddar cheese
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 t. red pepper
1. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, egg, and milk together in a bowl. Stir until a smooth batter forms.
3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
4. Heat 3 T. olive oil in a large skillet. Working in batches, drop large spoonfuls of the cauliflower mixture into the oil. Saute for 3 minutes on each side or until just browned. Transfer to the baking sheet.
