Cauliflower Pancakes

3 dozen pancakes
1 Hr 15 Min

What a great way to enjoy cauliflower! Our Cauliflower Pancakes will have your gang asking for second helpings of their veggies!

What You'll Need

  • 1 large head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided, plus extra if needed
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 6 tablespoons plain dry bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Place cauliflower in a large saucepan and add just enough water to cover; add 1 teaspoon salt to the water. Bring water to a boil over high heat and cook, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes, or until cauliflower is very tender. Using a colander, thoroughly drain the water from the cauliflower.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium-low heat and saute onion 10 minutes, or until golden brown; remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, with a potato masher or a fork, mash cauliflower until only small pieces remain. Add bread crumbs, eggs, sauteed onion, the garlic powder, remaining salt, and the pepper; mix well.
  4. In a large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of the cauliflower mixture in your hand and press flat to form a pancake about 1/2 inch thick. Place in the hot oil, cooking 5 to 7 pancakes at a time. Cook 6 minutes or until brown on both sides, turning halfway through the cooking, adding more oil as necessary.
  5. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately or keep in a warm oven until ready to serve.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I love cauliflower but I'm the only 1, so I reduced the amount and I used frozen, I also substituted panko for bread crumbs and added a tad of butter to this while hot so it melted into mix. I also added some fresh grated cheese and used chopped garlic as I love garlic also. With my additions it tasted good, I think it would have been a little nland w/o the butter but thats my opinion n I will make again.

Mrs. Claus' Holiday Cookie Cups

This cookie recipe combines two of Mrs. Claus' holiday favorites: gingerbread and eggnog! Mrs. Claus' Holiday Cookie Cups look great on a Christmas cookie platter, but they taste even better. After all, what could be better than a gingerbread cup filled with a fluffy eggnog cream? (Rumor has it that Santa and the elves really love these!)
