The Recipe: Cauli-tots
The Nitty Gritty: There’s a little bit of work involved with these, but not a ton, and your efforts will be rewarded! I used Coastal aged cheddar for the cheese and they were delicious. I paired them with Salisbury Steak and did not need any sort of sauce (like ketchup). I have made them in the past and DID use ketchup (Primal Kitchen), which was also very good.
When making the tots this time, I forgot about the cool-down period (before mixing everything together) so that threw a small wrench in dinner-making but it was no big deal.
I used my OXO medium cookie scoop and got 20 tots (instead of the 24 mentioned in the recipe). That was just fine since a serving is 1/4 of the recipe and 20 is easily divisible by 4!
Pro tip: Trader Joe’s sells frozen cauli rice in 12-oz bags which is PERFECT for this recipe!
The Bottom Line: These are VERY tasty and scratch the itch for tots. Will be in regular rotation on my menu!
