Directions

Pulse the cauliflower with the butter and cream in a food processor to a coarse consistency. Add the cheese and season with salt and pepper. Whip the egg white to a stiff peak in a bowl, and then fold into the cauliflower mixture to lighten it up. For best results, chill for about 30 minutes so they hold their shape.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Roll a spoonful of the mixture in the breadcrumbs, shape into tater tots using your hands and put on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake until slightly browned, about 15 minutes. Serve.

    Squeezed the access water out of the cauliflower before I mixed it with the rest of the ingredients or it would have been too moist. I added more cheese, and extra tbsp each of butter and cream, and used already seasoned panko. Used 2 egg whites and sprayed the tater tots with butter flavor non-stick cooking spray before I put in the oven. After baking it for 15 minutes at 375, I broiled it for an extra 10 minutes just to get it a more golden and crispy. Honestly, these tater tots did get rid of my cravings for the real deal. Of course it doesn't taste exactly like the real thing, but the texture and crispness is all there

    She needs to define cooked. Made these but they were wet and needed lots of breadcrumbs.
