Author: Greg Fleischaker


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese or less, according to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter avocado oil, or olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  • preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • remove the leaves and stem from the cauliflower head and cut into florets and wash
  • grate the florets into small pieces, I float the cauliflower in a few cups of water in my Vitamix and chop into little pieces simply by pulsing on and off a few times, very quick and easy
  • using a cheese cloth, vigorously squeeze as much water as possible out of the shredded cauliflower
  • place relatively dry shredded cauliflower into mixing bowl, add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly
  • using appropriate cooking spray like coconut oil or avocado oil, grease a small muffin baking tin
  • evenly spoon cauliflower mix into each of the 24 mini-muffin forms, pressing down a bit to compact the tots
  • cook for 30-40 minutes, or until they look nicely browned with a little bubbling of the cheese
