Cheesy Tater Tots


Cheese is one such miracle ingredient that can easily elevate the flavors of any dish available. One such dish, that is an epitome of this fact is Cheesy Tater Tots. Made with the tooth-some combination of all purpose flour, black pepper and cauliflower.

2 small cauliflower
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup all purpose flour
4 egg
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup bread crumbs

Step 1
To begin with wash and clean the cauliflower under running water, then using a chopping board, chop it into small florets and keep it aside until needed again.

Step 2
Now, put a deep-bottomed pan on medium flame and add enough water in it. Now, add the cauliflower florets in the pan and boil them until they are tender in touch. Once done, drain the water and keep the cauliflower aside. Now, dry roast the cauliflower on a non-stick pan for a minute or two, in order to remove its moisture on medium flame. Then, using a laddle, mash it and keep made cauliflower aside to cool off.

Step 3
In the mashed cauliflower bowl, add in all purpose flour followed by grated parmesan cheese, mix well. Top it up with salt and pepper and mix again.

Step 4
In this cauliflower-cheese mixture, crack open eggs and beat the mixture until you get a thick consistency. Then, line in a baking tray with clear paper and evenly pour the prepared mixture in it. Once done, freeze the mixture for an hour or two or until the mixture is rigid and compact. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200 degree Celsius.

Step 5
Next, transfer the cauliflower mixture into a tray, remove the clear wrap and cut the mixture into pieces. Then, properly roll the pieces in bread crumbs mixture. Once done, transfer the pieces into a greased baking tray and brush the tater tots again with butter. Once done, bake the tater tots for 45 minutes or until they are crispy and golden brown in color. Serve hot with any dip of your choice!
