2 cups grated or finely chopped cauliflower rice (about half a medium head)
1 egg
3 Tablespoons flour
¼ cup grated cheddar cheese
¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well.
  5. Press mixture together to make about 15 small balls or logs and put them on the baking sheet with space between each one.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through. For extra crispy tots, broil for an extra 2 minutes. Watch closely to avoid burning.
  7. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.


  • Texture will be best when freshly made.


We really, really loved this recipe!!  It was super fast, my 4 year old combined all the ingredients on her own and formed the tots, the cauliflower took less than a minute to grate and they also cooked fast.  Plus they tasted great to all!  Even better right out of the oven.  Only change, next time i will double the recipe.

My husband and I enjoy cauliflower and eat it regularly at home but I hadn't yet found a recipe that my kids liked. I called these cheesy tots like tater tots and my kids (ages 4 and 7) ate them! We'll definitely make this again.
