Cauilflower Fritters

Crispy browned cauliflower fritters make the perfect substitute for hash browns! This delicious breakfast is a complete meal on it's own, thanks to the addition of egg and almond flour. I love these with some shredded sharp cheddar cheese, but omit the cheese if dairy doesn't work well for you. I make enough batter for 3 servings, and keep it in my fridge for several days for quick meals. Each serving is 3 fritters. NET CARBS PER SERVING: 6 GRAMS

  • 3 cups cauliflower rice
  • 1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese optional
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or more, to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil


  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mixing well to form a batter. The cheese is an optional ingredient, and these patties cook great even without it.
  • Add avocado oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to pack the cauliflower fritter batter into, and then place on the skillet. Use a fork to press down each mound of cauliflower into a patty shape. I like mine on the thinner side so they get more crispy.
  • Fry the patties on each side until golden brown, about 6-8 minutes per side. Reduce heat if they are browning too quickly.
  • Serve immediately. If you choose to only cook 1 serving at a time, the leftover batter can be refrigerated in an air tight container for 3-4 days, and cooked when you're ready for a quick meal.
