I have a list of foods that absolutely cannot enter my house! Why? Well because with certain foods, I just have no self-control!
Home Run Pizza
Doritos ( any flavor!)
Peanut Butter Cups
Sour Patch kids
OH my goodness do I LOVE tater tots! I was watching ” America’s test kitchen” last week and I pretty much DROOLED during the entire homemade tater tot presentation!
I have been a little obsessed with cauliflower lately. Ever since I discovered the Cauliflower Pizza Crust, I have been buying a head of cauliflower pretty much every time I go to the store! I decided to kind of follow my cauliflower pizza crust recipe, but instead of adding Italian seasonings and rolling the cauliflower into pizza dough I added potato toppings and rolled them into cauliflower tots!
Loaded Cauliflower Tots
1) Make Cauliflower Rice – Cauliflower rice is easy to make. Just run a head of cauliflower through your food processor unit it looks like rice. then sauté the cauliflower rice in a pan with a bit of olive oil until it is soft.
2) Mix together with – 2 eggs and ” loaded potato” ingredients. I mixed my cauliflower with bacon bits, cheese and dill. I WISH I had some fresh chives to use but I just didn’t!
3) Using a cookie scoop, make 1 inch pieces with the mixture
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. For the last 2 minutes put your oven on broil so they get nice and crispy.
I cannot tell you how great these were! These crispy tots tasted Oh so good! Especially when I dipped them in ketchup!
It’s amazing how satisfying a healthier lunch can be if you just think about it and spend a little time making it!
I will defiantly be making these babies again!
